I attended a excellent presentation today from Bournemouth University and Dorset Cereals on KTPs, under the scheme a Gradute is recruited jointly by the company and the University and placed at the company for up to 36 months. You also get University support of half a day a week.
The Graduate is engaged to work on strategic projects within the business and the business contributes a 33% to 50% towards the cost, the rest is grant funded.
It sounds like an excellent scheme as you not only get a graduate but also get help from the University too.
