The digital transformation is moving Swiss VET schools and represents a profound development of educational institutions, affecting both the teaching and organisational levels of the school. The successful management of this change is primarily the responsibility of school management. With the help of two quantitative surveys of school management members (n = 306), the digital development status of Swiss VET schools was recorded immediately before the outbreak of the Corona crisis (11/2019 - 01/2020) and in spring 2021. In addition, the extent to which the leadership style of the test persons is related to this development is investigated. The results show an improved perception of the level of digital development (d = .420) over the course of the pandemic. At the same time, a decrease in digital barriers can be observed. As expected, only minor correlations with school leadership actions could be observed during this short time period. The planned third survey in 2022 will provide clarity in this regard.
