Lloyds Banking Group

"From starting with no knowledge of Makaton I found this course was excellent. I highly recommend this and hope Lloyds are able to bring you back in to teach us more as I can clearly see the value of colleagues learning this to help our vulnerable customers"

"Ali was a very enthusiastic and engaging trainer, she has a huge amount of knowledge which made the course flow easily. The time flew by I learned a lot which I could use if the situation arose. It has given me a good basic understanding from which I feel I could build on further."

"I will definitely be using Makaton from now on in our daily routines and introducing symbols to display and play."


"I thought it was very helpful and informative, I have lots of tools to work with moving forward."


I felt the workshop was at the right pace and the mix of activities made it very interesting. I also thought the tutor Ali came across passionate and knowledgeable about this topic and was very good at making everyone feel included which I know can be hard on an online learning platform."

Makaton Workshop - Early Years Taster

"Just a message to reiterate how much we enjoyed the session this morning and appreciate your support of Home-Start North Somerset.  The volunteers were very keen to take away this learning and use it with the families they support during their weekly visits.


Your passion for Makaton comes across and the mix of watching and learning, and then applying the Makaton in practice was fun and engaging."

"We’ve found the Makaton workshop really useful, we recently had another resident move in who is non-verbal due to a stroke. We are going to make up some boards for him with icons for various things like the games he likes to play etc! we never would’ve thought of it without your input"

"I just wanted to say what a fantastic session it was that you delivered this morning! It was so well received by the coaches, and I think the Makaton training will be incredibly useful in our work with children, with extra communication needs and without.


Huge thanks!"
