The Brilliant Tutoring Programme is a new scheme supporting state school students after the disruptions of Covid-19.
As a partner of the government’s National Tutoring Programme scheme, we offer expert tuition in English, Maths, and the Sciences, led by PhD researchers specialising in each of the core subjects.
Through guidance and tutoring from a passionate doctoral or post-doctoral tutor, the programme aims to:

If you have any questions or your pupils needs any support on the programme, your schools should be able to help out. Or, you can get in touch with us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our child is really enjoying his sessions and finding them super helpful. I am so very grateful that he has had this amazing opportunity in a subject he loves.

Teachers choose the pupils who they think will benefit most from the programme. For example, those who are most at risk of not meeting their potential due to the impact of school closures.
We also require that 55% of pupils from any school are from backgrounds that are underrepresented at university. For example, pupils that receive pupil premium funding or whose parents did not attend university in the UK.
The Brilliant Tutoring Programme will be delivered virtually and the tutorials will take place on either Microsoft Teams or Zoom platforms. This will have been pre-arranged by the school before your child begins the programme.
Scholars is a virtual learning environment (VLE) designed to emulate university-style learning by allowing PhD Tutors and pupils to interact outside of tutorials. Through Scholars, pupils can message their tutor, submit homework and assignments. Tutors also use the platform to complete, share feedback and grade pupil work.
Your child will be instructed on how to sign up and use the VLE by their school and we recommend of making a record of your child’s username and password. There is further guidance on the website that will explain how to create a pupil account.
For safeguarding purposes, all messages are reviewed and moderated on the VLE by The Brilliant Club.
I have seen students elated after a lesson. The praise and confidence building that some tutors have offered has been excellent. Many students enjoy the tutorials and I am sure that many would like them to continue.
