The Brilliant Club’s Researcher Development Programme offers PhD and Early Career Researchers a meaningful, professionally developmental, paid tutoring opportunity. Training with The Brilliant Club and working as a Scholars Programme tutor enables researchers to communicate their research to a non-specialist audience, gain valuable teaching and public engagement experience and deepen their knowledge of the UK education system.
Tutors will be supported to complete a series of training modules before beginning work with us, and further continuous professional development for each subsequent placement.
Once you are trained and registered as a Scholars Programme tutor, we will ask for your availability on a termly basis. For each term that you are available and interested, The Scholars Programme Team will aim to place you to work in one of our schools. You will then run a placement with 12 pupils, delivering 2 weekly hour-long tutorials to 6 pupils at a time.
