Are you a PhD 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 under-represented 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. To find out more, please see below.
At a recent training weekend in Sheffield, we caught up some Scholars Programme PhD tutors to hear their thoughts on the programme, watch the video below:
