About this course:

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 2016-17 academic year, The Brilliant Club placed over 500 researchers in schools across the UK, where they worked with over 10,000 pupils.

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.
