Scholars Programme Launch
The Brilliant Club is a charity that exists to increase the number of pupils from under-privileged backgrounds to study at highly selective universities. Achieved through scalable and sustainable means they recruit, train and place PhD tutors to deliver university-style learning programmes in schools that are based around their research projects. The charity works with pupils aged 10-18 and provides a structured programme with small-group tutorials, university trips and guidance around university applications. The charity was founded in 2012 by two former teachers and last year worked with more than 4,500 pupils in more than 150 schools across the UK.
Further information about the Club can be found on their website.
