Brilliant Club: help young people realise their academic potential

Brilliant Club

Our friends at the Brilliant Club are still looking for PhD researchers to tutor pupils disadvantaged by the pandemic. It’s a public engagement opportunity and the placements are paid positions. 

The Brilliant Club’s Researcher Development Programme offers PhD and Early Career Researchers a meaningful, professionally developmental, paid tutoring opportunity. Training with The Brilliant Club and working as a Scholars Programme tutor enables researchers to communicate their research to a non-specialist audience, gain valuable teaching and public engagement experience and deepen their knowledge of the UK education system.  

Brilliant ClubTutors will:

  • Support local pupils from underrepresented backgrounds to access university  
  • Get expert training and real experience to develop their teaching and other transferable skills  
  • Earn £500 per placement, plus an additional £100 for designing a new course, and travel expenses  
  • Disseminate their research to small groups of school pupils 
  • Join a nationwide community of like-minded researchers making a huge impact on university access  

It’s an ideal way to share your academic expertise with secondary school pupils. Deadline is this Sunday!
