Schools can become involved with The Brilliant Club in two ways, through either The Scholars Programme or Researchers in Schools.

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
