The Brilliant Club is an award-winning university access charity. They recruit and train PhD students and ECRs to support disadvantaged school pupils access the most competitive universities and succeed when they get there.
The Brilliant Club provides PhDs and ECRs training in widening participation, research communication, and teaching. Researchers are then paid to deliver academically rigorous programmes to small groups of pupils in state schools across the UK.
How does it work?
On The Scholars Programme, tutors are trained to create a course and handbook based on their own academic research. Tutors also have the opportunity to deliver a pre-designed programme to younger pupils aged 8-10. They deliver their course in university-style tutorials to groups of 7.
The Brilliant Tutoring Programme helps pupils who have been most impacted by Covid-19 to catch up on lost learning. This programme focuses on core curriculum subjects (English, Maths, Sciences) to help students regain confidence and is taught in groups of 3.
Placements are paid from £500 per placement (plus London weighting), with an additional £100 for designing a Scholars Programme course. Travel expenses are also covered.
To help fit alongside their other commitments, tutors indicate their availability and how many placements they would like to deliver on a termly basis.
