Could your business use a talented graduate or student?
We help you find the right people with the right combination of skills, talent and enthusiasm to deliver performance improvements.
Our range of programmes offer technical support, mentoring, project planning and delivery to suit your business needs. We support both you and your graduate throughout the term of the project.
Benefits to you
Are you a small or medium-sized company in the Tees Valley looking for an innovative and customised approach to solve a design, technical or business challenge.
Our Knowledge Exchange Internships (KEIs) give North East small and medium-sized enterprises a unique chance to engage with expertise from Teesside University.
How does it work?
A talented graduate (the intern), mentored by a University academic with relevant expertise drives forward a project for your organisation. This combination of fresh thinking and hugely valuable experience can bring cutting-edge benefits to your business.
KEIs are flexible, up to 12 months, according to your needs and can be approved within five working days of application.
Benefits to you:
This project is part financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), promoting research and innovation in the Tees Valley. If you are an SME in the Tees Valley and are interested in the scheme then please contact us to check your eligibility for support.
If you want to recruit qualified people, target Teesside University students and graduates.
