Contexte (territory issues, targeted audience)

The SIVU Thiers Peschadoires is a transport union which has competence in the public transport offer on its territory.
After the 2016’s foundation of mobility, the SIVU wishes to enrich its offer in term of mobility, knowing the legislative evolution which plan the organisation of the “mobility” competence and the creation of mobility answers on a new, expanded territorial jurisdiction. Thiers Dore and Montagne and Entre Dore and Allier (according to the orientation of the LOM). That reflection conducts it to think about the answer to bring especially to less “mobile” publics.

The mobility need of the apprentices is a very old observation, identified especially by the youth residence the Atrium in Thiers, which finds a decrease in demand for apprentice housing, the lack of mobility solution, especially for the -18 years old or the non-motorized young people.

The mixt union of the Livradois-Forez Parl also created an inter institution plan to the scale of 2 activity zone Racine (the Monnerie) and Felet (Thiers). Twenty companies (representing 850 workers) wished to be accompanied in that voluntary plan. Some leaders expressed the difficulty to hire apprentices or non-motorized young people, especially on the activity zone of Racine not served by a public transport at the time.
Another similar measure is in progress with the hospitals of Thiers and Ambert, the Thiers’ hospital especially, proposing a caregiver formation.

The demography of the territory is especially marked by the departure of the 18-24 years old to studying sites or first job, it’s a distinctive feature, which explains by the lack of post high school offers or formations, but also by the inadaptation of the housing or the mobility problems.
Another observation shows the decrease of the apprentice jobs offer; the number apprentices went from 55 to 16 in the metallurgy sector for example. The structuration of the territory, the access problems to the companies could constitute a brake to apprentice job offer?

Target audience:
- Young audience hosted at the Atrium and not having mobility solutions to get to their places of traineeship and apprenticeship

Actions implemented
