About Makaton Training


Makaton Training options are becoming streamlined by The Makaton Charity to make the training pathway clearer and simpler.

The previous options (Makaton Beginners Workshop for Parents and Carers or the Makaton Foundation Workshop plus Follow up or Enhancement Workshop) are being phased out, with one streamlined training pathway defined in levels.

Training options
The training options enable you to opt to book a 1-day training course only and build on this at a later date by booking further levels of training. The 2-day course mirrors the old Beginners / Foundation Workshop options, and is the most popular purchase by organisations.

Training content
The entire Makaton Core Vocabulary (CV) comprises 8 stages plus an additional vocabulary list.

Level 1 delegates learn the signs and symbols for stages 1 & 2 of the CV, plus half of the additional
Level 2 delegates learn the signs and symbols for stages 3 & 4 of the CV, plus the rest of the additional
Level 3 delegates learn the signs and symbols for stages 5 – 8 of the CV

All delegates receive a Participant Manual which contains the signs and symbols taught on the course.

All delegates receive official Makaton Charity certification.
