How does a KTP work?

A KTP can help you enhance your career prospects by providing you with an opportunity to manage a challenging project central to a businesses strategic development and long term growth.



Through your KTP project, you play a key role in managing and implementing tactical or strategic development in the business and transferring knowledge between the business and the knowledge base. KTP Associates own their project and are supported by experienced staff from the business and the knowledge base. Typical challenges you could encounter as a KTP Associate, depending on your qualifications, include designing and introducing new or improved products or processes, re-organising production facilities, introducing improved quality systems and technology, or developing and implementing marketing strategies to break into new markets.

The project lasts for a period of between 10 weeks to three years with approximately 70% of Associates offered employment by the host business.

Given the wide range of KTP projects available, all degree subjects are considered.  Recruitment takes place all year round.

Training and development

Looking for a job where you can gain a further qualification?

KTP Associates get to spend around 10% of their time in training and personal development, and at the start of the KTP they are given a training budget to manage - so you get to decide which courses you think would benefit you.

Training modules cover: personal development, project management, marketing and effective communication, finance and leadership development, as well as job-specific technical training.

In addition to the experience gained through working on a KTP project and the on-the-job training, Associates will have access to a wide range of training opportunities.
