Level 4 training

Level 4 training

Four women and a man signing at a Makaton workshop signing 'walk'

Level 4 training helps you to improve and develop your signing and symbol skills and how to use them effectively every day.

You will revise the signs and symbols you learned in your Level 1 and 2 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 content (Stages 7 & 8 of the Core Vocabulary).

The Level 4 workshop is currently in development and will be available later this year. It will be made up of two modules that The Makaton Charity recommends are delivered online in sessions of four hours each, and face to face in a full day of training.

Entry criteria

Participants must have completed Level 3 training.

Study materials

For the Level 4 workshop you will receive a Participant’s Manual  which includes the Makaton symbols and signs that you learn in the workshop.

For all workshops you will be given a certificate of attendance. Please remember to keep your certificate in case you want to attend further Makaton training.

Next step

After completing Level 4 training why not think about becoming a Makaton Tutor?
