Cheryl McIntyre - Rural Skills

I moved from Glasgow to Skye for the inaugural year of the Rural Skills Course. Fast forward 10 years later and I am now a part-time lecturer on that very course! I have my own croft with sheep, cows, pigs, bees and polytunnel. Having no real background in crofting, the year-long course was ideal to give me the footing to learn the basics and meet a lot of the people I interact with all the time now.

Nathania Douglas - Fashion and Textile Design

Studying at West Highland College UHI when I was 16 allowed me to progress onto amazing further education courses and to begin a career in something I am truly passionate about. I have now graduated with a First Class Honours degree in Fashion Design from Grays School of Art and am interning with a designer in Glasgow. The skills I was taught and the support that I was given was so beneficial to me as a teenager. It inspired and motivated me to take control of my future.
