Are you a PhD researcher or doctoral graduate who wants to help a young person realise their academic potential?
The Brilliant Club seeks to mobilise the PhD community to engage with state schools and support talented pupils from underrepresented backgrounds to progress to highly-selective universities. To do this, we deliver two programmes: The Scholars Programme and Researchers in Schools.
The Scholars Programme employs doctoral and post-doctoral researchers on a part-time basis to deliver programmes of academic enrichment to small groups of pupils. Through a combination of university trips, in-school tutorials and online resources, we support pupils aged 10-18 to develop the knowledge, skills and ambition needed to progress to highly-selective universities.
At a training weekend in Sheffield, we caught up some Scholars Programme PhD tutors to hear their thoughts on the programme, watch the video below:
