The Brilliant Club is a charity that exists to increase the number of pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds who go on to study at highly selective universities. The simple, scalable and sustainable way it does this is to recruit, train and place PhD tutors to deliver programmes of university-style learning in schools that are based around their research projects. The charity works with pupils from ages 10-18 and provides a structured programme that includes 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.
