Level 4 Training

The Level 4 workshop is made up of two modules that The Makaton Charity recommends are delivered online in two sessions of four hours each, on one or more days. When face to face training is permitted, the workshop would typically be delivered as a full day of training.

Level 4 training completes the Core Vocabulary.

You will revise the signs and symbols you learned in your Level 1, 2 and 3 training, and learn the signs and symbols for Stages 7 and 8 of the Core Vocabulary.


For Level 4 training you should attend one of the following workshops:

  • Level 4 workshop
  • Follow-Up Workshop (Day 2)
  • Enhancement Workshop (Day 2)

It does not matter which workshop you attend as they cover the same Stages of the Core Vocabulary).
