The Teaching Advanced Mathematics (TAM) course has been designed to support teachers of GCSE Mathematics who wish to teach A level Mathematics for the first time. Many teachers with A level teaching experience have enrolled on the course, often on the recommendation of colleagues who have completed TAM, to deepen their subject knowledge and gain new ideas for teaching.
The Department for Education funded TAM course will be delivered at seven locations across the country in 2016-17. The TAM course is also is available with Masters, delivered through the University of Cambridge, Manchester Metropolitan University and the University of Warwick). DfE bursaries are offered for both of these courses.
Teachers of A level mathematics at state-funded schools in England may apply for the TAM course until 9 May (thereafter only if places are available), and for the TAM course with Masters until 25 April (thereafter only if places are available).
Please note that a third version of the TAM course, the MEI-certificated TAM course, eligible to all mathematics teachers, will take applications from 6 June. There is no DfE bursary for this course.
Full details of all versions of the TAM courses, including a table that summarises the key similarities and differences between the courses, and answers to frequently asked questions, are available on our website at http://www.mei.org.uk/tam.
