A typical annual contribution is £20,000 (33% of the full cost) for SME’s and £30,000 (50% of the full cost) for larger companies. The rest of the cost is subsidised by Innovate UK. On average, each business undertaking a KTP generates an increase of over £240,000 in annual profits before tax, the creation of 2 jobs and upskilling of existing staff.
The graduate employed onto the project receives around £23,000 per annum.
