Join us for the launch of our International Student Entrepreneurship Programme

I-STEP is short for International Student Entrepreneurship Programme. The project aims to enhance international entrepreneurial skills and attitude of teachers and students in VET by creating an international dimension to entrepreneurship programmes and strengthening the local and European (business) network.

WHY ?

A truly international curriculum benefits all students because it calls on everyone to apply a wider perspective, combining the local with the global. It is widely accepted that students need to develop the skills and attributes that will enable them to operate effectively in a global market, therefore those in the VET community need to equip them with the ability to work across borders, both physical and virtual.
