What is The Brilliant Club?

Only 1 in 50 of the most disadvantaged quintile of 18 year olds progress to a highly-selective university. Over the last five years, The Brilliant Club has worked to increase this number by recruiting, training and placing over 1000 researchers across the UK to deliver programmes of university-style teaching to small groups of high-performing pupils from underrepresented communities.

There is now the opportunity for you to join this growing community of like-minded researchers and become a Scholars Programme tutor in 2017-18, supporting pupils to develop the academic skills, knowledge and confidence needed to progress to highly-selective universities.

The Brilliant Club will be holding an Information Event at The University of Manchester in the Roscoe Building, room 3.3, on Wednesday 6 September at 1pm. Please come along if you would like to find out more about becoming a Scholars Programme tutor.
