AMERSHAM and Wycombe College has joined forces with a business services group to win a prestigious contract for delivering online learning.

The college and the Aylesbury-based AdVal Group will supply e-learning for the UK Further Education Information Learning Technology Content Development Programme.

The college will supply the subject matter while AdVal will develop the software to deliver modules in care, childcare and social care for the next six months. Joy Solomon, the college's director of planning, said: "Our well-established reputation in childcare, health and social care will combine with AdVal's experience and expertise in e-learning."
