The Brilliant Club is an award-winning university access charity. They recruit and train PhD students and ECRs to support less advantaged school pupils access the most competitive universities and succeed when they get there.
Working with the Brilliant Club provides PhDs training in widening participation, research communication, teaching and curriculum design.
How does it work?
On The Scholars Programme, tutors are trained to create a course based on their own academic research pitched at pupils in Key Stage 4 or 5. Alternatively, tutors also have the opportunity to deliver a pre-designed programme to younger pupils aged 8-10. They deliver this course in university-style tutorials to groups of 7.
To help fit alongside their other commitments, tutors indicate their availability on a termly basis. Placements are paid from £550 per placement, with an additional £121 for designing a Scholars Programme course. Travel expenses are also paid.
The next deadline for applications is the 16th July.
