Since 2020, we have been working with schools across the UK to support pupils’ learning through our Brilliant Tutoring Programme. Our programme offers tutoring in core curriculum subjects led by a subject expert tutor. Now open for 2022-23 sign-up.

About The Brilliant Tutoring Programme

The Brilliant Tutoring Programme boosts pupils’ confidence, knowledge, and skills in core subjects. Our trained post graduate tutors raise academic attainment through small group tutoring.

Our courses are designed in collaboration with curriculum experts and our tutors are rigorously assessed and undergo extensive training. As subject experts, they support pupils to catch up and inspire them beyond the curriculum.

What does the Brilliant Tutoring Programme offer for schools?

The Brilliant Club supports state schools who have faced disruption from Covid-19 related measures. The Brilliant Tutoring Programme works in tandem with schools to provide extra support for students in core curriculum subjects.

  • Our programme works with Lead Teachers to select three modules out of a module list to tailor the course to pupils needs.
  • We offer intensive tutorials and heightened support for pupils in small groups of three pupils to one tutor.
  • We measure progress using formative assessments throughout the programme and an assessment completed at the end of the programme.


Why The Brilliant Club?

Impact icon

We have a ten year history of working successfully with pupils from less advantaged backgrounds.

Our tutors are university educated to Master's or PhD level. We train them to not only impart their subject expertise but to inspire learning beyond the curriculum.

We provide detailed impact reports throughout and at the end of the programme, outlining pupils' academic achievement and progress.

How does the Brilliant Tutoring Programme support pupils?

We support pupils’ progress by utilising the subject expertise and passion of post-graduate researchers and Master’s students. Our Brilliant Tutoring Programme extensively trains tutors to develop their pedagogy and teaching practices so that pupils benefit from and are inspired by their tutorials. Recourses and materials are provided so pupils have a structured learning environment:

Each pupil receives a handbook that contains all the material they need for their tutoring sessions. At the end of the programme, pupils receive one-to-one feedback from their tutor to support their future progress.

We met with a small sample of Year 10 and 11 students remotely, to gain their initial experiences of the Brilliant Tutoring Programme thus far. Each of them were very complimentary and it seems that those engaging are already feeling the benefits of the additional tuition and another perspective of curriculum delivery.

How does the Brilliant Tutoring Programme work?

The Brilliant Tutoring Programme provides online and hybrid tutoring to pupils in small groups (1:4) in core subjects. Every pupil receives 15 hours of tutoring over eight weeks.

Pupils complete formative assessments throughout the programme. We monitor pupil engagement and share data on a live basis with lead teachers.

  • A tutor will be allocated to a subject placement of eight pupils, with teaching groups of 1:4
  • Teachers work with pupils to select three modules to best support the needs of students
  • 15 one-hour tutorials run across up to eight weeks
  • Schools receive comprehensive Impact Report of pupil outcomes

School Contribution and Funding

In 2022-23 schools will have access to the School-led tutoring grant which they can use to support the costs of tutoring. This amount will vary per school and we advise schools to check government guidance and speak to their finance team to understand the amount of funding available. Government guidance can be found here.
