Online Makaton Workshops

Learn Makaton from the comfort of your own home!

The Makaton Charity have been working hard to adapt their service within the current uncertain climate, to ensure they eet the needs of the Makaton community during these challenging times.

We, at TALKmoreCORNWALL CIC,  are delighted to announce that Makaton workshops are now being delivered online.   All you need is a computer with a webcam and a stable internet connection.  Online workshops are limited to 8 participants.

How does online training work?

The online training is a combination of practical signing sessions and presentations.  We will send you a link/invitation to the training upon payment.  You will need to provide your address so we can send you a Participant’s Manual.  The training is done as a workshop in ‘live’ time so you will need to be ready to learn at the time your training begins.

What do I get for attending online Makaton training?

Participant’s Manual containing the Makaton signs and symbols you will learn in the workshop.  Emailed confirmation of attendance followed by a Certificate of Attendance posted later.  Group participation to boost confidence with signing and add an additional skill.

Do I need a camera to participate in online training?

Yes, this is a requirement to enable you to participate in our training online.  You will need to keep your camera on during the practical activities so we can see your signing and support you if needed.  Your torso, face and hands will need to be in view on the camera to allow us to see your signs effectively.How much is the training?

The introductory Recommended Retail Price is £59, this is to support our Makaton community through this time of crisis.  Please note that this RRP is approximately 50% of the average price for face to face workshops and it will increase once the current Covid-19 shut down measures are relaxed.
