The Brilliant Club’s Brilliant Tutoring Programme involves delivering a pre-designed, curriculum focused course and offers PhD researchers and doctoral graduates a paid opportunity to advance their professional development and develop the necessary skills to support pupils from underrepresented backgrounds. Training with The Brilliant Club and working as a BTP tutor also enables researchers to enrich their understanding of the UK education system through pedagogical theory training and first-hand teaching experience.
Tutors will be supported in completing a series of training modules before beginning their placement and offered further support through a tutorial observation to receive constructive feedback. Tutors are assigned a Programme Officer to support programme logistics and provide support throughout the placement.
Once you are trained and assigned a place in one of our schools, you will run a placement in which you will deliver 15 hours of tutoring to two groups of 3 pupils (A total of 30 hours of tuition per placement).
Phase One: Training. Tutors complete a series of training modules which prepare them for delivering the tutorials.
Phase Two: Logistics. The placement school will be confirmed. Working with the Programme Officer and the school’s Lead Teacher, the programme virtual learning environment (VLE} will be set up.
Phase Three: Deliver the tutorials.
Phase Four: Payment. Tutors are paid for every placement delivered.
