Makaton courses

There are different Makaton Workshops to suit the different needs and goals of participants.

If you are a parent, carer, family member or friend of a Makaton user, and you want to learn Makaton for the first time, then we recommend you look out for a Beginners Workshop; Makaton for Parents and Carers.

If you need to use Makaton in your working role, then the Foundation Workshop is an ideal starting point. This is also known as Makaton for Professionals.

At Course Beetle we find many people want to build on their original course and progress onwards to the next stage,

People who have completed the Beginners Workshop generally go on the complete the Follow Up Workshop next. People who completed the Foundation Workshop progress to the Enhancement Workshop.

All Makaton training provides you with information about what Makaton is and how it can be used in different settings.

You also learn signs and symbols from the Core Vocabulary to an appropriate level. The Core Vocabulary has the signs and symbols needed for everyday communication.

For some organizations the starting point on the Makaton journey, is to access a 90 minute Taster Session, which provides just that – a taster of what Makaton is – and the opportunity to meet a licensed tutor and find out about the best training package to access.

We know from testimonials how beneficial people find Makaton Training.
