This year our annual conference is being replaced with seven days of learning across three sectors with one fundamental aim; to celebrate movement, exercise and fidelity across EVERY sector.
Our #LLTLW21 launches on Saturday 20th March until Friday 26th March and we have over 20 presenters; academics, clinicians, practitioners, service leads from health, care, fitness sectors and the field of exercise science to share their knowledge experiences and research around movement, exercise and falls prevention.
In addition to the three sector based learning streams, LLT Education Connect Members* can enjoy access to selected sessions across the week as part of their existing membership. Keep reading for details of how to become a member.
Our theme for LLT’s 2021 Learning Week;
“Celebrating movement, exercise, fidelity and learning, and the part we all play across all sectors in improving outcomes for older people”
Sessions will be a mixture of “on demand”, and live. Our live sessions currently have a maximum of 100 users per session, however we will record all of our live sessions and offer these on “catchup”.
