This webinar is aimed at any business/public sector organisation/charity that work in any area/s of education.

Event Information

Do you have an idea for a project to make your business more sustainable/innovate or grow but do not have all the in-house expertise needed to develop it? Would you like to understand how to improve upon leadership in your sector or improve your systems, processes and management capabilities?

Discover how to develop the solution you need through a collaboration funded by Innovate UK.

Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) is a UK-wide programme managed by Innovate UK. It’s been running for 45 years and has supported more than 14,000 businesses to drive innovation for a positive impact. A typical KTP project delivers a support package valued at around £80,000 to £100,000 per year.

This event, being hosted by Bishop Grosseteste University, aims to bring together organisations working in various areas of the education sector (Primary, Secondary, TESOL, SENDI, Educational Leadership, Autism/ADHD/Wellbeing) to learn about the KTP funding scheme and the best way to collaborate to drive innovation and growth.

To facilitate engagement, there will be representatives from our Education Team available throughout the session to provide the opportunity for more targeted conversations to discuss ideas and challenges, and potential ways to collaborate through a KTP.
