Union Supports #NOWRONGPATH On Exam Results Day

NFU Scotland is encouraging those receiving their grades to consider the different paths and careers in agriculture

As pupils across Scotland receive their exam results today (Tuesday 4 August), NFU Scotland has joined by Lantra, the Young Farmers (SAYFC) and other organisations in highlighting the different career paths they can now take to get into agriculture.

With a variety of different types of jobs within agriculture, suited to a range of different skills and aptitudes, there is a career path for almost any pupil.

It is important for those who are considering agriculture as a career that there are many different routes available to them, whether they received the exam results they were hoping for or not.

Through a series of case study videos, produced by SAYFC, NFU Scotland has been sharing the stories of different professionals working in different areas of agriculture to show that there is no wrong path when developing your career.

The Union has also been promoting Lantra and the work it does to help young people into a career in agriculture through

NFU Scotland Vice President Charlie Adam said: “Congratulations to all those who received their exam results today, in what are extremely strange times. It will not have been easy over the last few months but the wait is finally over and hopefully you received the results you were hoping for.

“Agriculture is a fast moving, dynamic sector which provides a wide range of career opportunities to suit all interests and qualifications whatever your aspirations are.  There is no wrong path.

“I would encourage anyone who is unsure of their next step to go to Lantra’s website or even contact them directly. They have a lot of resources for those looking to get into farming and have a fantastic track record of getting enthusiastic young people onto the right career path.”
