ACCA signs virtual campus deal

The ACCA has signed a training deal with tutor company BPP to develop what it describes as a 'virtual campus'.

It is aimed initially at pupils studying the Certified Accounting Technician and Diploma in Accounting and Finance qualifications.

The virtual campus’ launch will take place in stages with the initial stage to be released by the summer.

Mark Protherough, ACCA’s head of student affairs, said: ‘Other professional bodies and organsiations have announced plans for computer based training which stop well short of this initiative. The unique strength of the ACCA-BPP virtual campus is that, as well as providing access to high quality computer-based learning materials, it will use the power of the internet to create a global community of learners.’

The training partnership with BPP, an international training group, will offer interactive training material via CD-Rom and the internet. Additional assistance will be supplemented by internet-based tuition and support due to be launched by the end of the year.

Justin West, managing director of BPP business education, said: ‘We are very excited by the chance to work with ACCA in developing the virtual campus which will revolutionise accountancy education.’
