The Brilliant Club
The Brilliant Club exists to increase the number of pupils from underrepresented backgrounds progressing to highly-selective universities. It does this by mobilising the PhD community to share its academic expertise with state schools.
In pursuit of its mission, The Brilliant Club runs two core programmes: The Scholars Programme and Researchers in Schools. The Scholars Programme recruits, trains and places doctoral and post-doctoral researchers in state schools to deliver programmes of academic enrichment to small groups of pupils. Through a combination of university trips, in-school tutorials and online resources, The Scholars Programme supports pupils aged 10-18 to develop the knowledge, skills and ambition needed to progress to highly-selective universities.
Researchers in Schools offers a bespoke route for PhD graduates to enter the teaching profession as full-time classroom teachers. Working in partnership with other providers, RIS offers a programme of initial teacher training and ongoing professional development that equips participants to utilise their academic expertise to the benefit of pupils, schools and universities.http://www.thebrilliantclub.org

They determine where they set up their business, the types of job roles they create, and how and who they recruit; the income set by employers impacts living standards, pension contributions, as well as spending power in their local economy; they also play an important role in the health and wellbeing of employees.
However, with each part of the UK having an individual identity, history and economy, impacting its local population and their opportunities, the challenges to social mobility, and the solutions, may differ from region to region.
That’s where we think the use of our new #Data Explorer tool can help – join us at this event on 7 June at 12pm for employers to find out how you can utilise our new tool to understand your workforce distribution; provide insight for outreach activity and hiring activity; and to serve and support regional communities.
