The Brilliant Club is an award-winning access charity that recruits, trains and pays doctoral and post-doctoral researchers to deliver programmes of university-style teaching to pupils in schools that serve under-represented 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.
And now there is opportunity for you to join The Brilliant Club’s PhD tutor community in 2020-21.
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.
