In pursuit of our mission, The Brilliant Club runs two core programmes, The Scholars Programme and Researchers in Schools.
The Scholars Programme recruits, trains and places doctoral and postdoctoral researchers in schools to deliver courses of university-style tutorials based on their own research. The courses are accompanied by two trips to highly-selective universities.
Researchers in Schools is a unique teacher training and development programme exclusively for PhD graduates. It is specifically designed to use participants’ subject expertise for the benefit of schools, pupils and universities.
Whether you are from a school or MAT, or a PhD student or postgraduate, there are many ways of getting involved with The Brilliant Club.
I definitely think my Brilliant Club experience was the most important factor in my eventual decision to apply to Keble College, Oxford, where I’ve now spent the happiest two years of my life studying English and Italian.
