KT For Graduates.
If you want to apply your degree, start a ‘real’ job straight away and gain a professional qualification, then a Knowledge Transfer (KT) is what you’re looking for.
You should be inquisitive, bright and serious about getting ahead.
Covering a huge range of projects, KT is one of the largest graduate recruitment programmes across the UK.
- launch your career from the right platform
- earn your value in the market place
- apply your degree to your job
- be mentored in your job
- gain ownership of your project
With a KT you take ownership of a project that is core to the development of the organisation’s strategy; you can apply your degree as well as develop your own skill base with continued support from both the organisation and academic supervisor. You also enable knowledge transfer between the organisation and the University.
Through your KT 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. KT Associates own their project and are supported by experienced staff from the business and the knowledge base. Typical challenges you could encounter as a KT 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 6 months to three years with approximately 70% of Associates offered employment by the host business.
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 KT project and the on-the-job training, Associates will have access to a wide range of training opportunities.
