Description

The Scholars Programme: University of Wolverhampton

A meaningful, well-paid teaching opportunity for University of Wolverhampton PhD students.

The Scholars Programme is run by The Brilliant Club, an award-winning charity that recruits, trains and pays doctoral and post-doctoral researchers to deliver programmes of university-style teaching to small tutorial groups of high-performing pupils in schools that serve disadvantaged communities. Over the course of the 2016-17 academic year, The Brilliant Club placed over 500 researchers in schools across the UK, where they worked with over 10,000 pupils.

There is now the opportunity for you to be involved in Autumn 2017 term placements.

The Brilliant Club will be holding an Information Event at The University of Wolverhampton, in the Research Hub located in the Harrison Learning Centre, room MD165 on September 28th 2017 from 1-2pm. Please come along if you would like to find out more about becoming a Scholars Programme tutor.

In addition to earning £500 per placement, successful candidates will gain valuable teaching experience, enhance their knowledge of the UK education system and develop a programme of tutorials drawing on elements of their own research with a chance to disseminate it to a non-expert audience. As well as this, they will also join a cohort of like-minded researchers who are interested in widening access to universities.

Tutors who are accepted to become a Scholars Programme tutor will be supported by a training programme consisting of two full-days including sessions on tutorial pedagogy, assessment and designing a course handbook. After the training session, The Scholars Programme begins with tutors accompanying their pupils on a university trip, followed by six further tutorials in their school, at the end of the programme pupils submit and assignment which is marked their tutor.
