In pursuit of our mission, The Brilliant Club runs two core programmes, The Scholars Programme and The Brilliant Tutoring Programme
The Scholars Programme recruits, trains and places PhD tutors in schools to deliver courses of university-style tutorials based on their own research. The courses are accompanied by two trips to competitive universities.
We are taking part in the national catch-up effort so pupils can access a future they deserve. The Programme aims to re-engage and rebuild pupils’ confidence in core subjects by working with a subject expert.
