Knowledge Transfer Partnerships

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) are a Government scheme, which has been running since 2003 when they replaced the DTI's Teaching Company Scheme (TCS) programme.

A KTP enables 'Companies' to access expertise, knowledge and skills within the UK's 'Knowledge Base'.

'Companies' include:

  • Businesses in most sectors and sizes
  • Some public sector organisations notably in NHS, education and arts and culture
  • Charities


'Knowledge Bases' can be one of the following:

  • HE Institutions
  • FE Institutions
  • Research Organisations

There is also a new scheme being launched which will provide shorter KTPs (10-40 weeks in duration). Please contact us for more information or visit the main KTP website
