Tutor, The Brilliant Club

Becca works as a Tutor for The Brilliant Club, a non-profit organisation placing young reseachers in non-selective state schools and sixth form colleges serving low participation communities to deliver programmes of university-style tutorials to small groups of outstanding pupils.

At The Brilliant Club, Becca works with Key Stage 4 students in Southwest London to form mentoring relationships and raise young people’s aspirations. As part of the Researcher Development Programme, she develops and publishes her own courses to co-learn about themes of environmental conflict and cooperation, the Middle East, and media portrayals of international relations. Alongside this teaching experience and her doctoral research, Becca is undertaking formal training in education and aims to have a formal certificate in Higher Education by the time she completes her PhD.
