What is special about Digi tech?

SOSU assistant Digi tech. (With special focus on welfare technology)  
Sosu assistant digi tech combines theory and practice in the training course, which lasts 3 years and 3 months.
SOSU Syd is primarily responsible for the theoretical part of the education, while Sønderborg Municipality is primarily responsible for the practical part. Together we connect the two learning spaces, so that there is a connection between the theories and methods you learn at school and what you learn in training. This training takes place, among other things, in care centres, in home care and in psychiatry. 

Digi tech is an education that both supports today's and future workplaces and familiarity with the use of welfare technology. The education's focus on welfare technology ties the technological possibilities together with the needs of the individual citizen. At the same time, it supports and develops the way the municipality provides care. 

You will be taught communication, collaboration, problem solving and innovation. This approach ensures that you are both professionally skilled and that they can bring several skills together to solve the challenges of today and the future. 

You will also act as role models who use digital solutions to promote the quality of life of citizens and support a good working environment.
