The Brilliant Club’s Researcher Development Programme offers PhD and Early Career Researchers a meaningful, paid, professional development opportunity.

Our mission is to support less advantaged pupils to have fair access to university. We do this by training PhDs and ECRs as tutors to deliver two programmes in non-selective state schools. The Scholars Programme allows researchers to share their subject expertise, delivering an academically challenging supracurricular course; The Brilliant Tutoring Programme allows researchers to use their subject knowledge to support pupils to develop in key curriculum areas.

Tutors working with us will develop Vitae compatible competencies. They will:

  • Gain valuable teaching and public engagement experience
  • Receive expert training and support
  • Help pupils from underrepresented backgrounds to have improved life chances
  • Deepen their knowledge of the UK education system
  • Earn from £500 per placement
