The Brilliant Club – PhD and ECR opportunities – 2023-24

The Brilliant Club is an award-winning university access charity. They recruit and train PhD students and ECRs to support disadvantaged school pupils access the most competitive
universities and succeed when they get there. The Brilliant Club provides PhDs and ECRs training in widening participation, research communication, and teaching. Researchers are then paid to deliver academically rigorous programmes to small groups of pupils in state schools across the UK.

How does it work?
On The Scholars Programme, tutors are trained to create a course based on their own academic research pitched at pupils in Key Stage 4 or 5. Tutors also have the opportunity
to deliver a pre-designed programme to younger pupils aged 8-10. They deliver this course in university-style tutorials to groups of 7.

To help fit alongside their other commitments, tutors indicate their availability on a termly basis. Placements are paid from £550 per placement, with an additional £121 for designing
a Scholars Programme course (plus London weighting). Travel expenses are also paid.
