Euan Rider hasn't looked back since he decided on a change of career. Here's the story of how West College Scotland helped him make a name for himself in the world of showbiz and TV:
I was working in a call centre in Glasgow when I started thinking about a change of career.
I had heard about the opportunities available at West College Scotland's Greenock campus and also the excellent reputation it has, and it was no problem travelling there from my home in Glasgow every day.
The lecturers were really supportive and gave me great advice about what course I should do. The facilities at the Greenock campus are excellent.
I enrolled initially for one year to do a NC Media Make-up but I ended up studying for three years and gained qualifications in HNC Fashion Make-up and HND Make-up Artistry.
On top of that, was also awarded the Student of the Year prize which was a real honour.
The lecturers were really supportive and gave me great advice about what course I should do.
I had a fantastic experience at West College Scotland. That's why I come back to Greenock to speak to students , give demonstrations of my work and, I hope, help inspire them.
Coming back to Greenock, feels like coming home!
