The cantonal transfer of Moutier to the canton of Jura on January 1, 2026 will be accompanied by a reorganization of professional training in the field of crafts.

The cantons of Jura and Bern have discussed the subject on several occasions. They confirm their desire to maintain strong professional training in the artisanal field, in order to allow apprentices to benefit from favorable conditions and to continue their collaboration for certain trades.

On the Jura side, the CEJEF Artisanal Division will offer seven new artisanal training courses. In Delémont, training for road builders and forestry loggers will be open. In Moutier, the Craft Division will provide training for electrician installers, sanitary installers, heating installers, tinsmiths and operating agents.

The CEJEF will continue to train Bernese apprentices in eight sectors (carpenters, painters, bakers, tilers CFC and AFP, manufacturers of industrial equipment, metal constructors CFC and AFP). The CEFF Artisanat, which will move its current sectors from Moutier to Bienne at the start of the 2026-2027 school year, will continue to train apprentices from the Jura in four sectors (carpenters, specialists in the wood industry, butchers, specialists in catering).

Apprentices from Bernese companies trained at Ceff Artisanat, currently based in Moutier, will in the future go to Bienne for their training. Furthermore, the CEFF Artisanat will gradually open new sectors in Bienne, for example architectural designers, civil engineering designers, logisticians or masons.

The Canton of Jura will therefore deploy several artisanal sectors in the ceff building in Moutier. Branches in other fields will also be open. The Jura authorities are presenting their overall concept for establishing the CEJEF in Moutier today.
