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 disadvantaged communities. Over the course of the 2018-19 academic year, The Brilliant Club placed over 500 researchers in schools across the UK, where they worked with over 13,000 pupils. There is now the opportunity for you to be involved in Spring term and Summer placements.

The Brilliant Club will be holding an information event on Thursday 21th November at 11 am in Main Arts Lecture Room 2(LR2).

In addition to earning £500 per placement, successful candidates will gain valuable teaching experience, enhance their knowledge of the UK education system and develop a programme of tutorials drawing on elements of their own research with a chance to disseminate it to a non-expert audience. As well as this, they will also join a cohort of like-minded researchers who are interested in widening access to highly-selective universities. Tutors will be supported by a training programme consisting of two full-day sessions and will accompany their pupils on a university trip.
