Disgruntled employees, power struggle at the top, lack of strategy: The Federal University Institute for vocational education and training (sfivet) is in crisis. Of all places in the vocational education and training, the favorite theme of the outgoing education Minister Johann Schneider-Ammann, have erupted in the last days of a conflict. One that smoldered for a long time.
The MONORAIL is the competence centre of the Swiss vocational education and training. At three locations in Zollikofen, Lausanne and Lugano, among others, vocational teachers, and test experts are trained. 15'000 people attended there in the past year, education or training.
"Mutually agreed termination of the contract,"
a few days Ago the Director of the Cornelia Oertle and the EMS Council, which oversees the Directorate have, in a termination of the employment contract notified by the end of December 2018. In the case of Schneider-Ammann's economic and educational Department of the WBF, one speaks of a "mutually agreed termination of the contract".
The separation was preceded by an Intervention of the staff Association of the Federal government (PVB). Because had complained several EMS employees about the supervisor, the PVB middle of the year, an anonymous survey. "The result was clear: It is not a individual Dissatisfied, the EHB rule fundamental difficulties," says Jürg Grunder from the PVB.
The EAW lies with the several cantons in the dispute
EHB-President of the Council, Philippe Gnaegi responded by, he had to evaluate the Performance of the Directorate. The results of this analysis are confidential, says the WBF. Neither Oertle still Gnaegi wanted to take a position. As third parties to confirm that have signed a confidentiality agreement. So, also remains open, which outlet has negotiated compensation Oertle.
In the case of the private workforce is obviously unpopular, Cornelia Oertle strong advocate in the field of education. So about Rolf Dubs, former HSG President was, personally, in the case of Federal councillor Schneider-Ammann for Oertle. However, they do not, in contrast to Gnaegi the right party book: Gnaegi is how Schneider-Ammann, a Free Democrat. The Items in the sfivet Board, he received, after he was voted out of office in 2013, in the neuchâtel cantonal government.
Already with Oertles predecessor Dalia Schipper Gnaegi was a power struggle. Schipper, the Secretariat-General of Schneider-Ammann's ultimately the choice of whether it wants to hold on to her or Gnaegi. The GS decided to Gnaegi, and let Schipper fall, how Involved to confirm. Schipper himself does not comment to your departure. She says: "Since the appointment of the Gnaegi the EHB mixed in-Council in operational matters."
Anita Fetz: "Clear strategy deficit"
"operational matters" is, among other things, a conflict with some of the cantons. "The EAW with several colleges of education is in competition, because the division of responsibilities is not clearly defined," says SP-Councillor Anita Fetz, who knows the Dossier from the educational and economic Commission. The EAW is fighting since years with some of the cantons, about who should provide training for vocational school teachers. SP-Councillor Anita Fetz sees a "clear strategy deficit".
in addition to the strategic problems Johann Schneider-Ammann to his successor, Guy Parmelin leaves also an acute leadership crisis is not yet over. The PVB requires that the EHB will be coached managers and the communication improved. Jürg Grunder says: "With the departure of the Director of the problems with the EAW are not yet fully solved, we will continue to check whether our recommendations are implemented."
