David Rivoire created Les 2 Rives in 2002, a company specialising in VLE support and the implementation of diploma solutions. For 18 years, with his team, he has accompanied more than 10,000 people in a VAE process. He also creates experimental programmes for adapting skills and access to employment for jobs threatened by technological or organisational changes, based on the valorisation of individual experience and combining validation and training.
Les 2 Rives is an ESUS (Entreprise Solidaire d’Utilité Sociale), showing the unchanged will for 18 years of a validation system at the service of employment and employability and not only of the diploma. Les 2 Rives became part of the Adecco group in July 2020.

David Rivoire is the author of two books on validation:

  • “Génération VAE”, which examines the way in which the education system could evolve thanks to VAE
  • “Préparer et réussir sa VAE”, in which he makes the Les 2 Rives VAE method available to everyone

In 2020 he was commissioned by the government to propose a reform of VAE.

In 2016, David Rivoire co-founded the Social Bar with Renaud Seligmann with the aim of putting the social link and conviviality back at the centre of exchanges. After the success of the first establishment, the Social Bar raised €1.5M in 2020 and plans to open 25 new establishments over the next 5 years.
