Makaton Level One (two sessions)

Event code EYC 20/232 
Event description 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.

There is an additional charge of £26 which 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. This will be invoiced to you separately. Please keep your attendance certificate as you will need it if you wish to attend the Level 2 Workshop.

The training course is not suitable to be accessed 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.

The interactive Zoom training will be delivered over two sessions on two separate days. Confirmed delegates will be e-mailed the links 24 hours prior to the session. Please ensure you are able to access zoom at least 1 hour prior to the session.
