The TAM course

This course is for teachers in state-funded schools and colleges in England. All participating teachers must be teaching AS/A level Mathematics throughout the academic year in which they do the TAM course.

The course fees are £600 but schools and colleges of participants are entitled to £900 (or £1200 for teachers from schools in Priority Areas) on completion of the course in recognition of the support they give to their colleague.

Participants are required to take an active role in eight study days, spread across the year, focusing on A level Mathematics subject knowledge and pedagogy.  Course tutors carry out two school/college visits to each participant to observe and support his/her A level teaching. In addition, participants study the content of A level mathematics, from a teaching and learning perspective. Participants have access to an extensive website of teaching and learning materials and this access continues for two years.
