Basic Makaton Workshops

The Taster session is a customised two-hour stand-alone teaching session.

This is a short session designed for people who are interested in finding out about Makaton and deciding whether or not to attend Makaton training.

Level 1 workshop*

Makaton Level 1 is the starting point for anyone new to Makaton and assumes no prior knowledge. The Makaton Core Vocabulary is at the centre for everyone learning Makaton. During Makaton Level 1 you will learn 135 signs and symbols over the course of 6 hours (either one day or two half days) and be able to use Makaton in your daily interactions with people who have speech, language and communication needs. A certificate of attendance is awarded on completion of the Online Workshop evaluation.

Level 2 workshop*

The Level 2 Workshop builds on Level 1 and requires another 6 hours (1 day or 2 half days) of teaching. Level 2 covers a further 150 signs and how to implement the use of Makaton in your home or setting. Modules can be taught over one whole day or individually and learners receive a certificate of attendance on completion.

Advanced Makaton Workshops

Levels 3 & 4 Workshops*

The Level 3 & 4 Workshops are for anyone who has already attended the Makaton Levels 1 and 2, and wishing to extend their skills.
