The graduate, known as the ‘associate', brings new skills and knowledge to the business. A KTP can last between 12 and 36 months depending on the project and the needs of the business. It is part-funded by a grant. The amount businesses need to contribute is different for SMEs and larger companies. Next submission deadline: 11 May.
