More Information

The requirement in the Companies Act 2014 obligating the directors of a company to appoint a suitably qualified individual to the position of company secretary has enhanced the company secretary’s position as the principal legal administrative and compliance officer within a company. The duties and responsibilities of the company secretary vary depending on the industry in question and the type of company involved. With an increased focus on the need for effective governance in the current climate, the position has expanded in many companies, and the scope of the role has moved beyond corporate compliance to become a focal point for advice about governance, compliance, and the conduct of business.

This established course focuses on the procedural requirements of company secretarial practice and aims to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the company law framework and key corporate governance provisions under the Companies Act.

The programme is based on the following module scheme and covers key themes as listed below:

Module 1: Company law, the secretary, the board and members
Module 2: Corporate compliance
Module 3: Corporate compliance 2 - shares
Module 4: Corporate compliance 3 - wind up
Module 5: Public limited company

Who should attend?
This course is suitable for the following:

  • Solicitors who offer company secretarial services or who advise clients in this area,
  • In-house lawyers,
  • Those looking to develop their company secretarial skills and knowledge with a view to developing new opportunities and offering new services to existing clients,
  • Company secretaries and their teams, 
  • Suitably qualified corporate governance and compliance professionals looking to develop their legal knowledge and practical skills in this growing area.
