The Certificate in Employee Share Plans REGISTRATIONS OPEN FOR 2022!

5 October 2021

Have you heard about Tapestry’s Certificate in Employee Share Plans?
Following the positive feedback we have received for our 2021 virtual course, we are very excited to announce that our industry-leading course will also be delivered virtually for 2022!
However, we are combining virtual learning with in-person exams and optional in-person networking events - so the class of 2022 will get the best of both worlds.
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 2022 Certificate will be delivered by leading industry experts - share plan lawyers at Tapestry Compliance. The course will run with virtual interactive teaching sessions, so you can take the course wherever you are. 

Completing the course continues to result in an accreditation by the Chartered Governance Institute UK & Ireland (formerly known as the ICSA).
What does the course cover?
Tapestry’s Certificate in Employee Share Plans is a must have for anyone who works with executive or employee share plans. This course will help you gain specialist knowledge in:

  • design
  • accounting
  • legal requirements
  • disclosure
  • taxation
  • compliance

The course is suitable for anyone working with employee share plans, including benefits consultants, HR or compensation professionals, administrators, reward professionals and those in company secretariat.

How will the course be structured?
The course is split into 2 parts and each part will be taught over 5 short days on Zoom, finishing around lunch time each day. These session timings 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. These sessions ensure an interactive experience and the opportunity to learn from each other, with fun exercises and practical examples to help consolidate your knowledge.

Are there in-person networking opportunities?
Yes. 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, as long as it is safe and possible for us to do so, we will be hosting optional in-person networking sessions in London for both parts of the course. Dinner and drinks are on us!

How will the course be examined?
We know taking exams virtually adds additional stress and technology worries. To reduce this stress, provided it is safe and possible to do so, the exams will also be in-person. Exam centres will be in London and possibly other venues in the UK (TBC).

For those based overseas, exams will be virtual.

What are the dates for the course?
Each part of the course will run over five short days.

Part 1:                                                            Part 2:
