Warwickshire College apprentice, Scott Thomas, certainly got more than he bargained for when he was undertaking the practical element of his Horticulture End Point Assessment at his employer’s premises recently.

Under the watchful eye of Assessor, Stuart Philips, Apprentice Scott had got to work demonstrating his trench skills as part of his digging assessment. All was going well until Scott unearthed something totally unexpected – over 20 rounds of unused WWII rifle ammunition!

In line with health & safety protocol the area was made safe and the police were contacted.

Unphased by his experience, Scott was moved to another safe site location and completed his assessment, which he passed with flying colours.

Stuart Philips commented “This was certainly a new one on me!  I’m certainly used to dealing with many different obstacles when it comes to assessing practical activity but never anything like this. I can only complement Scott on the way he handled the situation so calmly and professionally”
