The Brilliant Club is an award-winning and independently-evaluated charity that exists to increase the number of pupils from underrepresented backgrounds who progress to highly-selective universities. We do this by mobilising the PhD community to share its expertise with state schools. We recruit, train and place PhD researchers to work with state schools: either part-time as tutors through The Scholars Programme or full-time as classroom teachers through Researchers in Schools (RIS). In 2017/2018, The Brilliant Club worked with 500 state schools and 12,000 pupils across the UK, making it the largest university access programme for 11-18 year olds.
We are excited to be recruiting for a Curriculum and Development Manager for Researchers in Schools.
