KTP and KEEN

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP)

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) give recent graduates the opportunity to demonstrate their skills, build upon existing knowledge and make their mark on projects of strategic importance to their placement company. KTPs offer graduates (called Associates) a fast track into management with real responsibility from day one. As part of a national scheme, KTPs are available across several disciplines including engineering, information technology and environmental sciences.

The Knowledge Exchange and Enterprise Network (KEEN)

KEEN is a new project, unique to the West Midlands and is part funded by ERDF. Recent graduates (called Affiliates) have the opportunity to work for a small to medium sized West Midlands business for between 6 to 24 months. KEEN is able to offer opportunities across a wide variety of disciplines including marketing, business process and engineering.

KEEN and KTP graduate benefits

Both knowledge transfer schemes pay a competitive salary and offer an equipment and travel budget helping to equip graduates with the right tools to ensure success. Both Affiliates and Associates are supported throughout the process by an academic mentor and have access to University facilities and resources for the duration of their programme. With KTP over 70% of Associates are offered employment by their host company on a permanent basis at the end of their programme.
