Researchers in Schools Programme

Researchers in Schools is a three-year teacher training and development programme delivered in partnership with the educational charity The Brilliant Club.

The programme recruits and trains career changers with PhDs to be teachers in all EBacc subjects. Alongside qualifying as a teacher through the School Direct route (Salaried or Fee) with TKAT SCITT, the participants will add value to your schools by developing and disseminating their subject expertise with colleagues, running pupil interventions, championing Higher Education and engaging in education research.

Throughout the programme, participants are required to have one day a week of protected time to focus on these areas to support their placement school’s priorities.
