North Sydney, Nova Scotia – Mactech Distance Education is entering a milestone year, celebrating 25 years in business!
Known as an innovator in distance education MDE, located in North Sydney, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, currently employs 36 people and plans for expansion continue.
Originally, the concept of distance education was to grant access to students living in rural communities as well as those whose access was restricted due to limited transportation, disability, or family and employment commitments. 25 years later, MDE continues to deliver quality education to students in both rural and urban communities – the convenience and flexibility of e-learning is in demand by people across the nation.
Distance Education is, increasingly, becoming one of the most widely accepted methods of earning an education and MDE has the credentials and the experience to PROVE that they know how to do it right!
In the past 12 months, in order to ensure quality customer service and strengthen student services, there have been 5 new hires. MDE VP of Operations, Heather Sophocleous says, “It is exciting to be part of a growing company that has the capacity to put people to work in valuable and interesting jobs.”
Being in business for a quarter of a century is certainly a significant accomplishment - MDE will celebrate the milestone with a redesigned website, the introduction of student bursaries, staff appreciation events, and a public reception later next year.
