The Makaton Workshop Level 1 online course, delivered by qualified Makaton regional tutors, provides a practical introduction to Makaton for workers, parents and carers who need to use Makaton in everyday situations, at home and/or at work. You will learn the signs and symbols for Stages 1 & 2 of the Core Vocabulary plus half of the Additional Vocabulary. The course is very practical and interactive.
The cost of the workshop includes the required training manual, postage of the manual to your home address, and the cost of posting your certificate to you following the training. Please keep your attendance certificate as you will need it if you wish to attend the Level 2 Workshop.
