Face-to-face workshops

There are over 1,000 licensed Makaton Tutors across the UK, delivering training to over 30,000 parents, carers and professionals every year.  Having a tutor network across the UK means people access Makaton training locally and have a local support network.

Most tutors are employed by health, education and social care organisations and deliver Makaton training as part of their job.  Others work in a freelance capacity.

How do I find a course?

Go to Find training and search for a workshop near you.  

If you cannot find a workshop offered by a Tutor in your area, set the search distance to 100 miles or “All”.

How much is the training?

Makaton workshops are provided through our tutor network. In order to help keep the cost of Makaton training as low as possible, The Makaton Charity recommends the levels of fees that tutors and trainers should charge. Tutors and trainers charge for the training they offer but sometimes have to add on the cost of room hire, travel and other necessary expenses.

As part of your training, you will receive your own study materials which include: Makaton symbols and signs, participant manual(s) and a certificate of attendance.
