Signing-off 2019 with our Makaton Christmas message


Every year, the courses BB Training offer make a real difference to people’s lives, job prospects and wellbeing. That’s why we have chosen to showcase Makaton as part of our festive celebrations this year.

BB Training Makaton tutor, Rebecca Walker, has been doing some amazing work throughout 2019, overseeing our successful Makaton courses and most importantly, raising the profile and awareness of this important education. This has included presence and workshops at leading national events such as Childcare Expo in London, Manchester and Coventry.

To show our appreciation and lend our support, the BB Training office-based staff have joined forces to share good tidings in a unique and special way. We have all taken part in learning a little Makaton and the results can be seen below!

Do you know a little Makaton? Have a favourite Christmas song? We would love to see your own versions of our video! You can share them with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!

Supporting children and adults with communication difficulties is incredibly rewarding and our staff enjoyed learning the signs and symbols to share this alternative system of communication. We continue to invest ourselves in learning and educating others.

If you, your staff or your colleagues could benefit from continuous professional development in 2020, you can see the latest courses available here.

Finally, to all our learners, clients and associates, we wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
