ISSET Background

The International Space School Educational Trust was founded in 1998 as a UK registered charity. The Trust's mission is to use space exploration and the people behind it to motivate students from all backgrounds to realise their potential, grow their confidence and help them achieve their dreams in whichever field they choose.

International Space School Educational Training Ltd., trading as ISSET, is the commercial arm of the Trust that manages the different programmes and handles direct-to-consumer sales internationally.

For over 20 years, in partnership with some of the world’s leading organisations, the Trust and ISSET have led the way in space and STEM education for all. The Trust runs sponsored programmes for students who may not otherwise be afforded these opportunities. We work closely with education ministries and local governments to ensure we accommodate students who are best in need of these experiences.
