As part of the Level 4 and 5 QW Health and Social Care and Childcare qualifications, all learners will need to complete an External Assessment and in order to do this, learners will need to be registered on the Pro platform, as opposed to Walled Garden. We have developed a video ’Getting started with Pro’ to advise you how to create users in the Pro platform, as well as how to register learners for these qualifications.
Further support materials are available in Pro under the Welsh Qualifications tab and if you have any further questions on this, please email: email@example.com’.
