Welcome to the Brilliant Tutoring Programme. This section of The Brilliant Club’s tutor training is designed to prepare you to deliver a curriculum-focused Brilliant Tutoring Programme placement.

Brilliant Tutoring Programme Tutor Training

Welcome to the Brilliant Tutoring Programme! We hope you are looking forward to working with pupils to build their confidence in core subjects.

Before you begin your training, our Brilliant Tutoring Programme team would like to say a few words of welcome and share more about the programme and the pupils we work with.

We have outlined the general structure of online training and approximate timings for each step here. However, as everyone works at their own pace and comes to this training with different expertise, these are general estimations, and we encourage you to take whatever amount of time you feel is appropriate for you to complete them.

Stage 1: Introductory Module (New and returning tutors)

If you have not completed your safeguarding training, please ensure you view this introductory module before continuing your training. All newly recruited tutors should complete both sessions in this module.

Stage 2: Online Training Modules (you are here)

These sessions will draw on all three of our core principles for effective delivery, but in particular they will look at:

  • Planning
  • Progress

There are two modules in total to work through to complete this training. By the end of the training, you will have:

  • Identified the resources available to support you to deliver the programme
  • Developed strategies to assess pupil knowledge and learning needs
  • Explored techniques for selecting the resources best suited to support your pupils.
  • Considered best practises for providing feedback.

After completing these two modules, you will be asked to complete an exit quiz.  Please ensure you complete this exit quiz to finish the training.

What materials are available? 

On the following pages you will find a series of training videos, explanatory text and activities to complete.  To support your training, we have developed the following resources for tutors:

What happens at the end of these online modules? 

There will be an exit quiz and feedback survey for you to complete. These will ask questions about the content, but also collect feedback from you. One of the charity’s core values is to act on the best available data, so feedback from our tutors is very important to us.  To see what changes to the training we have made off the back of last year’s feedback, please click here.

Please make sure you complete the exit quiz to confirm you have completed the training.

How to make the most of this online training

There are prompts throughout the video sessions to pause and complete tasks that will help you towards preparing to deliver your course. We have suggested timings, but feel free to take whatever amount of time you think is appropriate for you to complete them.

You can also refer to the available guidance and examples mentioned above.
