The application form should take no more than 1 hour to complete. We do ask that you explain, in as much detail as you can, your motivation for working as a Brilliant Tutoring Programme tutor and what experience and skills you will bring to the role.
The next application deadline for Brilliant Tutoring Programme placements is Sunday 19th September. Please note that we are currently assessing tutors eligible to teach Maths, Science and English.
We welcome applications at any time of the year and have a rolling application process. However, we encourage candidates to apply by the deadline above to fit in with our next cycle of placing tutors in schools.
At Assessment Centre, you will be asked to do three things:
If you are invited to Assessment Centre, we will send you detailed guidance to help you to prepare.
Yes, as long as you have Right to Work in the UK. You will have to bring the relevant documentation, in the form of physical documents, to prove this to your assessment centre.
Do you sponsor visas?
No, we cannot sponsor visas.
A placement with us does count as paid work; you should check the government policy guidance to ensure you understand the limit for your specific situation.

The total number of hours you work on each placement may vary, and it is up to you to manage your time. As a guide, you should expect to work between 40 and 55 hours over the course of a placement, which will usually run over a term. You may need to work slightly more hours if it is your first placement delivering a self-designed course. Under no circumstances do we expect you to spend more than 60 hours working on any single placement.
That’s fine. If you are successful at assessment centre, we will send you a termly availability form to check whether you would like to work that term.
We welcome applications from researchers of all nationalities, and believe it is a real strength of our programme that school pupils are working with tutors from all over the world. We run training sessions about the UK education system as part of our training weekends, for any tutors who feel this will better equip them to work with British pupils.
If you return to work with us on subsequent placements, you must complete the Continuous Professional Development sessions.
Every BTP tutor is assigned a Programme Officer who will support you to deliver your placement. Tutors also receive a handbook which contains information and helpful tips relevant from pre-placement logistics to the end of the placement.
No, tutors are facilitated with resources and content created by curriculum experts. Tutors familiarize themselves with the course before delivering their placement.
Yes, many of our PhD tutors run multiple placements in one term or return to work with us each term or year.
You will need to ensure you can commit to a full placement before you agree to work in any given term. Once we have agreed dates with you and the school, these cannot be amended as the school will have made arrangements for the programme to run within this time frame.
