After yet another very successful run last year, BGU will again be offering Makaton training for this academic year. The training is aimed at students, teachers and anyone else with a need or interest in learning sign language.
Starting in October 2017, we are offering 1 day introduction courses, 2 day foundation courses or 3 day enhancement courses. Makaton uses both signs and symbols as a method of communication and is used worldwide.
We think the best way to learn is to attend a workshop – you learn with other people, share your experiences, receive feedback on your signing and symbol work, and you can practice with others. It also gives you the opportunity to meet and build a relationship with a Makaton Tutor, who can help and support you in the future.
If you’re interested in attending this course, please email our Project Officer, Gemma Fogg or call 01522 583621.
