We will also be running an Introductory Taster Makaton Workshop and a block of 5 Topic Workshops for those working with all age groups, as well as running some Seasonal Makaton Workshops for nursery and primary school staff, which can all be booked individually for £10 per person.

These popular sessions themed around seasonal festivities sold out quickly last year, so keep an eye on the website and our social media pages! Here’s what previous participants on Makaton Seasonal Workshops and Bespoke Makaton Workshops have said:

“I thought the presentation was very good. I felt her approach was fantastic. I felt I was on a one to one on the screen with her she showing us the signing, slowly, repetitive, informative, and encouraging us to gain confidence quickly to learn them.”

“One of the most beneficial pieces of training I’ve accessed during my time as an EYP.”
