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 groups of high-performing performing pupils from underrepresented communities.
Tutors work with their groups to deliver a series of tutorials that stretch pupils beyond the curriculum, and help them to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence necessary to secure places at top universities.
Over the course of the academic year 2016 -17 almost 450 researchers from 70 Universities were placed in 550 non-selective state schools.
As a Brilliant club Scholars programme tutor, not only will you earn £500 per placement, but also gain valuable teaching experience as well as the chance to develop new skills in public engagement . As part of the programme you will develop tutorials based on your own research and think about the best way to disseminate it to a non-specialist audience.
Above all, you will also join a cohort of like-minded researchers who are interested in widening access to highly-selective universities. Full training is provided by qualified teachers and researchers.
