Knowledge Transfer Partnerships

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) are a government-funded scheme to share university knowledge with UK businesses. These partnerships allow you to recruit a graduate associate and access specific skills to increase your business productivity and improve performance. KTPs can last between six months and three years and often result in long-term partnerships.

A KTP provides up to 67% Government funding to support the transfer of university expertise into small to medium-sized business and up to 50% funding for large organisations.

Training and professional short courses

We offer specialist or bespoke training, across a wide range of sectors, tailored for your business and employees. We believe organisations that encourage the professional development of staff benefit from greater loyalty, dedication and performance. By enhancing your employees’ skill-sets, you can increase productivity, inspire loyalty and decrease staff turnover.
