I-STEP aims to enhance international entrepreneurial skills and the attitude of teachers and students in Vocational Education and Training (VET). I-STEP provides an international dimension to entrepreneurship programmes and strengthens the local and European network of VET schools. I-STEP achieves this by sharing knowledge; experiences; and practises in the field of (international) entrepreneurship; and ensuring cooperation between VET, regional business, government and research institutes. Participants are VET (teachers, managers, coordinators) and students in all fields of education.
