The sixth Edition of the Tandem project by Andorra Business, whose objective is to implicate the Vocational Training (FP) educational community of Andorra in innovative projects developed within companies and enhance students´ talent, was presented on Monday October 4th. This year 91 students will take part, the highest number ever, and 12 teachers from the center in Aixovall who will work on the challenges presented by Abast Global (how to attract, return and retain talent in Andorra?), Daguisa Hotels (how to eliminate all plastics in hotel management?) and FEDA (how to foment healthy habits within the entity´s workforce?).

The Minister for Presidency, Economy and Enterprise and president of Andorra Business, Jordi Gallardo pointed out that “the project aims to bring the Vocational Training students closer to the entrepreneurial and innovation world. It allows the students to participate in all the innovative phases such as creation, prototype development, presentation, the acceleration of the project … and from the perspective of Andorra Business we are especially satisfied with the consolidation of this project”.

In addition, the Minister for Education and Higher Learning, Ester Vilarrubla, highlighted regarding the Tandem Project “the challenges presented are in line with the values we want to promote and are connected to the Objectives for Sustainable Development” and further adding “it responds to many of our ambitions in the educational field. That a company proposes a challenge and as a group of students you can work with the school´s resources on a real-life problem is a great opportunity”.

Representatives from Abast Global, Daguisa Hotels and FEDA were also in attendance for the presentation.

Previous editions of the Tandem project

The first edition of Tàndem ended in May 2017, with three proposals presented by the Vocational training students. They came up with various solutions to the challenge posed by Perfumeria Júlia, which consisted of analysing the customer’s behaviour to improve their experiences inside the shops. The winning project consisted of an application to capture the customers information thanks to a method that combines NFC, Wifi and Bluetooth technology. Eleven students and five teachers took part of the project, involving Perfumeries Julia as the only participant company.

In the Tàndem’s second edition, the Vocational training students had to face the challenges posed by the companies: Dermandtek, on how to raise awareness to prevent skin cancer; Hotels Plaza, on how to offer a personalised gift experience to its clients; and Inlingua, on creating an attractive language immersion project during the months of July and August aimed at teenagers. Among the five finalist projects, the winner was for an application and a loyalty points system that allows the client to enjoy exclusive advantages and activities in the hotel facilities. In this edition, all the students of the Vocational Training Centre (61) participated, supervised by 11 teachers, and worked on challenges set by the three companies.
