ISEP, a registered charity, is dedicated to supporting the overall educational growth and development of the youth in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, through benefiting from partnership with the Isle of Man.

In 2022, ISEP’s inaugural programme was launched when 12 students of the SVG Community College travelled to the Isle of Man for a three-week educational course.

In 2023, ISEP’s first scholarship was awarded to a former student of the Girl’s High School, who is presently pursuing studies in the Isle of Man.
