The Brilliant Club

 

The Brilliant Club works to achieve its’ mission by recruiting, training and placing PhD researchers to work in state schools. They run two core 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, they support pupils aged 10-18 to develop the knowledge, skills and ambition needed to progress to highly-selective universities.

 

At Coppice Primary School, 12 Year 6 pupils were offered the opportunity to participate in The Scholars Programme.  The programme was launched in November 2016 with a trip to Sussex University, where pupils were given a comprehensive introduction to university life by existing students. In addition, pupils experienced their first tutorial with their PhD tutor, during which they were introduced to their research topic: History – Poverty and Progress.

 

Following four school based tutorials with their tutor, pupils submitted  a 1,000 word assignment. Graduation will take place at St Catherine’s College Cambridge in January 2017.
