covers commonly asked questions, hints and tips for effective signing and symbol
use, as well as how to start using Makaton in everyday situations.

the workshop is the same as the face to face version so staff will learn the signs
and symbols from Stages 1 and 2 of the Core Vocabulary and part of the
Participant’s Manuals will be provided which includes the presentation materials as

Participant’s Manuals will be posted to your address.

Participants will also receive a Certificate of Attendance after the workshop. Again,
these will be posted to your address. The Certificate of Attendance has no expiry
date which means there is no requirement to repeat the Makaton Workshop Level
1 in the future. Participants just need to keep the certificate as they will need it to attend further Makaton training, such as Level 2.
