Schools can become involved with The Brilliant Club in three ways, through The Scholars Programme, Researchers in Schools or the National Tutoring Programme.

The Scholars Programme

The Scholars Programme recruits, trains and places doctoral and postdoctoral researchers in state schools to deliver courses of university-style tutorials, which are supplemented by two university trips.

The Scholars Programme can be delivered to pupils from 10-18 and runs across the UK.

Researchers in Schools

RIS is the world’s only teacher training programme exclusively for those who have completed a doctorate.

The programme provides specific training that enables participants to add value to their schools in the following areas:

  • Delivery of an impactful Pupil Premium intervention for most-able pupils
  • Engagement with and promotion of evidence-informed teaching practice
  • Dissemination of subject expertise within the school context
  • Championing of university access for pupils from non-selective state schools

The National Tutoring Programme

The Brilliant Club are planning to be part of the national effort to support schools in addressing the impact of Covid-19 school closures on pupils. Our Brilliant Club PhD tutors will deliver curriculum focused tuition to small groups of pupils. The programme will be open to current and new partners.

The National Tutoring Programme (NTP)has been designed to support schools in providing a sustained response to the coronavirus pandemic and to provide a longer-term contribution to closing the attainment gap. Visit their website for further information.

The programme provided by The Brilliant Club will utilise our current tutor training, impact and evaluation and delivery expertise to deliver a curriculum focused programme to support the National Tutoring Programme.
