    The Brilliant Club: teaching opportunities for doctoral and post-doctoral researchers

    Book a one-to-one appointment to speak to a member of staff from the Brilliant Club on Thursday 28th July. Further details on how to book a slot below.

    The Brilliant Club is an award winning charity that recruits, trains and places doctoral and post-doctoral researchers in non-selective state schools to deliver programmes of university-style tutorials to small groups of high performing pupils.

    During our autumn placements, our PhD Tutors will work with twelve high-performing 10-12 year old pupils, delivering a series of six tutorials that takes them beyond the curriculum and helps them to develop the knowledge, skills and ambition necessary to secure places at top universities. Successful candidates will receive training by qualified teachers and academics that focuses on learning theory and teaching technique. The first tutorial takes place at our launch trips, where tutors accompany pupils on a visit to a highly-selective university.  To find out more or apply now, please visit www.thebrilliantclub.org/apply

    We will be running one-to-one appointments at UCL to introduce researchers to the programme on the afternoon of Thursday 28th July between 14.00 and 16.30.  Bookings must be made to secure a slot.

    To book a slot, please email Dr Rajbir Hazelwood at hazelwood@thebrilliantclub.org.
