Brighton’s KTP Scheme Celebrates it’s 40th Anniversary: Here’s How To Get Involved

Thousands of graduates have stepped up the career ladder through Knowledge Transfer Partnerships. This year, the scheme celebrates its 40th anniversary, so it’s a great time to find out more.

By applying for a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) Associate role, you have the chance to apply your degree, deliver a strategic project and start a job which will give you excellent commercial experience. Each partnership involves a university, a business and a highly talented graduate where the graduate carries out a strategic project with expert university academic guidance. You will be supervised by both the company partner and an experienced academic team whilst delivering the project and will also be encouraged to develop your own qualifications by undertaking training and registering for a higher degree or professional qualification which is supported by a training budget of £2,000 per annum.

KTP Associates gather once a year to network and present their projects at the annual KTP Associates Conference.  2015 Best Poster winner Andrew Black (University of Brighton and Class of Their Own – pictured above) said “the conference was a fun opportunity to meet new ‘KTP-ers’ from all over the country, as well as catching up with friends from my KTP residential training modules. It was really useful with some really interesting presentations; especially showing just how diverse the different kinds of KTP projects are! Winning the poster competition was great! I find my KTP really exciting and it’s nice to know other people do too!”
