Future Research Support

The Brilliant Club Placements: A paid opportunity for PhD students to teach their own research!

The Brilliant Club is an award-winning charity that recruits, trains and pays doctoral and post-doctoral researchers to deliver programmes of university-style teaching to small tutorial groups of high-performing pupils in schools that serve communities with a low participation rate in Higher Education.

 

There is now the opportunity for you to join this growing community of like-minded researchers and become a Scholars Programme tutor in 2017-18, supporting pupils to develop the academic skills, knowledge and confidence needed to progress to highly-selective universities.

Tutors are placed in a school to work with two groups of four or six high-performing pupils, delivering a series of tutorials that stretch pupils beyond the curriculum and help to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence necessary to secure places at top universities. Tutors will be supported by a training programme consisting of two full-day sessions and will accompany their pupils on a university trip.

Through working as a tutor with The Brilliant Club, you will:

  • Develop teaching experience and other employability skills
  • Receive high-quality training in teaching pedagogy
  • Enhance your knowledge of the UK education system
  • Disseminate your research to a unique, non-expert audience
  • Join a community of like-minded researchers across the UK
  • Have the choice of how many placements you’d like to take part in, getting paid £500 per placement
