This course is for teachers in state-funded schools and colleges in England. All participating teachers must be teaching A level Mathematics (or other level 3 mathematics courses) throughout the academic year 2016-17.
The course fees are £600 but schools and colleges of participants are entitled to £1200 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 or nine study days, spread across the year, focusing on A level Mathematics subject knowledge and pedagogy and related academic research. 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 five A level modules, from a teaching and learning perspective, with support using an on-line classroom. Participants have access to an extensive website of teaching and learning materials and this access continues for two years.
This course is a Masters level course and part of the funding the school/college receives is dependent on completing Masters level assignments.
In 2016-17 we are working with the University of Cambridge, Manchester Metropolitan University and the University of Warwick to offer the TAM with Masters course. Each university has slightly different features to their version of the course as TAM forms part of their Masters’ degree offer.
