Developing skills in the mobility sector

CARA is a co-sponsor of two actions under the French government’s Attractiveness, Skills and Employment (ACE) investment plan (PIA2). The first is the Campus des Métiers et des Qualifications Auto’mobilités. The second is the experimentation of the Employment-Skills Platforms.

Main objectives of the campus

To meet the challenges related to employment, training and skill development, technological and sociological changes, and a competitive market, the Auto’Mobilités campus relies on clear objectives:

  • Teach students, teachers and skilled workers how to face technological and sociological transitions in the field of mobility
  • Share technical facilities to conduct industrial and educational projects
  • Support collaboration between educational establishments, research laboratories and manufacturers.
  • Promote the industry and improve professional integration into the mobility sector

The Auto’mobilités campus includes

  • High schools, vocational and higher education institutions
  • Training organizations
  • Research laboratories
  • Business and associative partners

Main actions of the campus

In 2019, 3 training courses have been co-created: Architecture of Hybrid & Electric Vehicles, Sustainable Development, and Li-ion Batteries.

A total of 10 courses are planned by the end of 2021.

Since 2018, the campus has organized several orientation days in the region to help 4th grade students learn about the various professions in the field of future mobility.

Employment / skills platform

The diversity of the sector’s professions is such that some companies have difficulty recruiting people with the skills and training needed to develop, while others need to upgrade the skills of some of their employees to adapt to changes in the sector, such as the digitalization of production tools and manufactured products.

In order to respond to this ambiguity, which is characteristic of the sector’s professions, an experiment is being carried out as part of the PIA ACE project in specific employment areas: the Employment-Skills Platforms.

It is being implemented jointly by the Arthur Hunt Group and CARA.

Its objective is to promote skills mobility in an employment area by identifying the obstacles and the ways they can be overcome, and thus help companies recruit the employees they need, and support candidates in their job search.

In 2020, 3 Employment-Skills platforms were created in the Bourg en Bresse, Ardèche Nord and Rhône Nord areas.
