How does the scheme work?
Each KTP is a three-way partnership between a business, an academic institution and a KTP Associate. The academic institution employs the KTP Associate, however they work within the company, in partnership with the academic team who deliver ½ day per week support, to bring new skills and knowledge to the business.
A KTP can last between 12 and 36 months depending on the needs of the business. It is part-funded by a grant (67% for SMEs and 50% for large companies).
