Tapestry’s Certificate in Employee Share Plans 2021. We’ll come to you…

Have you heard about Tapestry’s Certificate in Employee Share Plans? We know life is operating a little differently at the moment, so we are very excited to announce that our industry-leading course is going virtual for 2021!
Whether you want to learn about plan design, or how to develop and operate share plans effectively and compliantly, we will give you the knowledge to find the solutions you need – delivered in a flexible way, whilst still maintaining all the great things we know our attendees value. 

The 2021 Certificate will be run with the same quality teaching – delivered by leading industry experts, share plan lawyers at Tapestry Compliance – but with virtual interactive teaching sessions, so you can take the course wherever you are, including from the comfort of your own home.

Completing the course continues to result in an accreditation by the Chartered Governance Institute (formerly known as the ICSA).

What does the course cover?

The Certificate covers key topics such as:

  • What are the most popular types of share plans, and why?
  • The legal rules to operate plans, including insider dealing rules and financial assistance.
  • How to make a contract legally enforceable, and why that matters.
  • What are the latest developments with malus and clawback?
  • How to account for share plans.
  • What goes into an agreement with service providers – and why?
  • Operating overseas – what needs to be considered, and what are the risks?
  • How share plans are taxed.

How will the course be structured?

Instead of 3 full days of teaching for each Part of the course, shorter and reworked session timings will make it easier and more practical for on-screen learning and to fit around other commitments. 

The course will combine larger group teaching with participatory learning through smaller breakout sessions, each hosted by a Tapestry lawyer. You will still get the same interactive experience and the opportunity to learn from each other, with fun case studies and practical examples to help consolidate your new knowledge.

One of the most valuable added benefits of the course is the networking opportunities that you get from being with your classmates outside of the office. Don’t worry, we’ll be hosting additional virtual sessions throughout each Part of the course, so that you can meet other professionals in your industry and get the chance to know them away from the classroom.

Dates for the course?

Each part of the course will run over five short days. Our exams will be run virtually too.
