Course overview

Who is the course aimed at?

The Certificate in Employee Share Plans course has been designed especially for:

  • company secretaries, assistant company secretaries and those supporting the company secretarial function;
  • administrators, both those within companies and those providing services externally;
  • human resource professionals, those working within companies in designing and communicating employee share plans;
  • benefit consultants who advise on employee and executive share plans.

The qualification

This is the only professional employee share plan qualification available in the UK. Participants can expect the course to be equivalent to the first year of a three-year undergraduate honours degree programme in the United Kingdom.


Course Structure

We have restructured how we are delivering this course for 2021. The session timings make it easier and more practical for on-screen learning and to fit around other commitments. The course is split into two parts - Part 1 in Spring and Part 2 in Autumn. Each Part is delivered over 5 short days. Each Part will be followed by a virtual exam.


Who delivers the Course?

The Course is delivered by the expert lawyers at Tapestry Compliance Limited and some additional expert guest presenters. The main presenters are Hannah Needle, Chris Fallon, Lorna Parkin, Sally Blanchflower and Emma Parker who have many years of employee share plan experience between them. The experts delivering the course advise on these issues professionally and provide practical insights on the issues.
