Makaton Sign Language

Makaton is a language programme used worldwide by children and adults. It uses signs and symbols as both a main method of communication and as a way of supporting speech.

About the Course

Our Makaton training is aimed at students, teachers and anyone else with a need or interest in learning sign language. Choose from One Day Introduction Courses, Two Day Foundation Courses or Three 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.

Course options:

  • One day Induction Course – acquire basic signing skills from stages 1-4, including colours, days of the week and the alphabet. Learn to use your signs within structured sentences (BGU attendance certificate on completion)
  • Two day Foundation Course – learn signs and symbols from stages 1-4, plus additional core vocabulary. Includes all manuals, and pocket books of signs and symbols (internatioanlly recognised Makaton certificate on completion)
  • Three day Enhancement Course – enhancing skills acquired through the Foundation course. Learn signs and symbols from stages 5-8. Includes all manuals and pocketbooks of signs and symbols (internationally recognised Makaton certificate on completion)
