Brief Overview

The Makaton Workshop Level 2 online course will support participants to build on skills and knowledge gained from attending the Level 1 Workshop, which covered stages 1 & 2, plus half of the Additional Vocabulary. You will learn the signs and symbols for Stages 3 & 4 of the Core Vocabulary, plus the remaining half of the Additional Vocabulary. The course is very practical and interactive.

The training is delivered by a fully qualified Makaton tutor using Zoom. There are 2 sessions of a maximum of four hours each, delivered over two separate days. Please note that the maximum number of delegates for this course is 12.

This section includes important information - please read carefully:

There is an additional charge of £20.35 per participant for this training as set out below:

  • Each participant MUST purchase a Makaton Workshop manual at £20.35 each. This is a requirement of the Makaton Charity. The manual contains all the signs and symbols learnt on the course, the PowerPoint slides and a wealth of supporting information.
  • Delegates that pay by credit card will be contacted by our Finance team, so they can pay for their manual over the phone.
  • Once payment for the manual has been made, the tutor will contact each participant, who will need to supply a home address, or other address, to which the manual is to be sent prior to the training. The cost of postage, packing and admin for the manual is included in the course purchase cost. 
  • In order to attend this training you will need access to a stable internet connection and a full size laptop, iPad or similar. The training course is not suitable to be delivered or attended on a mobile phone. You will need to see the tutor and other participants clearly, and they will need to see you, from at least the top of the head to waist height.
