Teaching A level Mathematics


Teaching A level Mathematics (TAM) is a sustained professional development course, designed to support the development of teaching skills and subject knowledge of teachers new to teaching AS/A level Mathematics.

TAM features:

  • eight course days, spread over 12 months, devoted to deepening subject knowledge, developing teaching approaches and reflecting on classroom practice
  • two formative lesson observations conducted by a subject specialist
  • textbooks to support your studies
  • access to online teaching and learning resources


  • Develop your confidence with the concepts in AS/A level Mathematics
  • Deliver more engaging and relevant maths lessons, with improved progress through differentiated learning

Who will benefit from attending?

The Teaching A level Mathematics (TAM) course has been designed to support teachers of GCSE Mathematics who wish to teach A level Mathematics for the first time. However, many teachers with experience of teaching A level Mathematics have enrolled on the course, often on the recommendation of colleagues who have completed TAM, in order to deepen their subject knowledge and gain new ideas for teaching.


In order to participate in TAM, you must be teaching in a state-funded school or college in England and have a minimum of two hours or two lessons per week of AS/A level Mathematics on your timetable for the whole academic year. This teaching should be to an entire class, include some Pure Maths content, and you must have sole responsibility for planning and teaching these lessons evert week.
