Recruitment and information session by the Brilliant Club
May 25 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Brilliant Club – why get involved?
The Brilliant Club is an award-winning university access charity that works with schools, universities and researchers across the UK. It exists to increase the number of pupils from underrepresented backgrounds progressing to highly-selective universities. The charity does this by mobilising the PhD community to share its expertise in state schools.
In pursuit of its mission, The Brilliant Club runs two core programmes: The Scholars Programme and Researchers in Schools. The Scholars Programme recruits, trains and places doctoral and postdoctoral researchers in schools to deliver courses of university-style tutorials based on their own research. The courses are accompanied by two trips to highly-selective universities.
Researchers in Schools is a unique teacher training and development programme exclusively for PhD graduates. It is specifically designed to use participants’ subject expertise for the benefit of schools, pupils and universities.
