Level 2 training

Level 2 training

Two men at a Makaton workshop signing 'walk'

Level 2 training builds on the knowledge you gained in Level 1 training.

Level 2 workshop
"It has been a great time. I feel confident and better skilled in my professional role."


You will learn the signs and symbols from Stages 3 and 4, and the rest of the Additional stage, of the Core Vocabulary.


Level 2 training is made up of two modules which can be delivered in a number of different ways, for example:

  • over 1 day
  • 2 x 3hr sessions delivered on two separate days

Entry criteria

Participants must have attended Level 1 training.

Study materials

You will receive a workshop manual, which includes the Makaton symbols and signs that you learn in the workshop.

You will also be given a certificate of attendance.  Please remember to keep your Level 2 training certificate in case you want to attend further Makaton training.

Workshop titles

For Level 2 training you should attend one of the following workshops:

  • Level 2 workshop
  • Beginners' Workshop (Day 2)
  • Foundation Workshop (Day 2)

It does not matter which workshop you attend as they cover the same content.

Next step

After completing Level 2 training you can attend Level 3 training.

My Makaton teacher

Jacqui S with her son

We learned Makaton when he was younger but I didn't think it would continue to be useful. I thought 'well he has some language so to keep signing would be holding him back'. I was completely wrong of course: I am still learning new signs and still using Makaton in all sorts of situations...
