What is a KTP

A KTP is a three-way collaboration that benefits all parties:

• A graduate or post graduate (known as an Associate)

• An organisation (a business of any size, in any sector or a not for profit organisation)

• A university/research institution (Knowledge Base).

Creating lasting change

KTPs are designed to deliver an innovation project and bring about lasting, transformative change. As a KTP Associate, you lead the project with full support and input from the organisation and the WMG team.

KTP Associates spend around 10% of their time in training and personal development. At the start of the KTP you get a training budget to manage – so you decide which courses would benefit you.

How long do they last?

KTP projects last between 12 months and three years with approximately 70% of Associates offered employment by the host business at the end of the project.

Typical challenges

Typical challenges might focus on designing and introducing new products or better processes, re-organising production facilities, introducing improved quality systems and technology. The possibilities for transformation via a KTP are almost endless; likewise for KTP Associates.

Who will be your employer?

You will be jointly recruited by the business and the University of Warwick who will be your employer.
