Love blossomed on apprenticeship scheme
A YOUNG couple gained more than a job when t hey fell i n love and got married after meeting on a Modern Apprenticeship programme.
Ashleigh and Chris Bilsland went to the same school – but only started to speak to each other when they found themselves on the same Modern Apprenticeship programme at Wheatley Group.
The organisation has taken on more than 300 apprentices since it launched its programme in 2009 – but Chris and Ashleigh realised they only had eyes for each other.
The pair, who are both 24 and live in Cambuslang, joined Wheatley on the programme in 2012, and romance blossomed.
They got married last year after Chris proposed during a trip to New York.
Ashleigh said: “An apprenticeship at Wheatley gave me a great opportunity for working, learning and earning – and I met my soul mate as well.”
The pair will also take a year’s sabbatical and plan to travel the world together.
Apply to the Modern Apprenticeship scheme at www.wheatleygroup.com, or ma@ wheatley-group.com by March 30.
