Due to a number of constraints it will not be possible to hold the main CAPS-A Training (3 days) course in 2021, however we are hopeful of running this in 2022.

As a CAPS-A Trainers group we continue to investigate options regarding running training courses in 2021. There are considerable challenges regarding the logistics of these and ensuring the fidelity of training. There are also a number of current pandemic-related work challenges. This means it is likely to take some time to clarify with any certainty how a future course might run. We hope to keep you updated regarding this and aim to post an update again in the next 3 months.


In the meantime, we hope you like our new look website which should be coming on stream in the next couple of weeks. Please note our new email address: cleft.capsatraining@gmail.com


Wishing everyone good health in 2021.
