The Brilliant Club

The Brilliant Club is an award winning charity that recruits, trains and places doctoral and post-doctoral researchers in low participation schools to deliver programmes of university-style tutorials to small groups of high performing pupils.

During their autumn placements, the Brilliant Club’s PhD Tutors will work with twelve high-performing 10-13 year old pupils, delivering a series of six tutorials that takes them beyond the curriculum and helps them to develop the knowledge, skills and ambition necessary to secure places at top universities. Successful candidates typically deliver a pre-designed course and modify it to include aspects of their own research interests. Courses include ‘Evolution’, ’Turning Points in English History’ and ‘Could the stars float in the bath?’

The training programme is delivered by qualified teachers and focuses on learning theory and teaching technique. The first tutorial takes place at the launch trips, where tutors accompany pupils on a visit to a highly-selective university. The in-school tutorials are each one hour long, and pupils complete the programme with an extended assignment which tutors mark before delivering the final tutorial.

Tutors are paid £450 for a single placement, and there are opportunities to take part in more than one placement in the autumn and over the following terms with older pupils.

If you would like to apply to work as a Brilliant Club tutor, please fill in the online application form here

Please note that our final assessment centres for our autumn placements are in early October; any applications after that date will automatically be considered for our Spring placements with Year 9/10 pupils.
