Teachers’ Pension Scheme – strategic issues independent schools need to think about

In association with Succession Wealth

About This Webinar

20 July 2022 - 14:30 – 15:15

The significant (and rising) cost of continued membership of the Teachers’ Pension Scheme remains firmly on the agenda for many governing bodies of independent schools.

One in four independent schools in the UK has now either left, or is set to leave, the TPS following the 43% increase in the employer’s contribution rates which took place with effect from September 2019. A cost which many independent schools at that time could not afford, and, following the impact of Covid-19 on the economy, even more schools are now feeling the pressure.

It is widely expected that a further rise in contribution rates for the TPS will be announced in the findings of the 2020 actuarial review (which is currently underway) with rumours in the sector suggesting an increase to as much as 30% of pensionable salary with effect from April 2024; a cost that is likely to raise challenges for many schools.

In this joint webinar with Succession Wealth, we will provide independent schools with the tools they need to navigate this issue. We will highlight the strategic decisions that school leaders, governing bodies and trustees should be considering over the next 12 months, the various options available, and some of the typical challenges that schools could face.

If you wish to put your questions forward in advance, please email these to events@shma.co.uk

Diversifying or leasing your land to create habitat banks

Webinar | Agriculture

About This Webinar

Wednesday 6 July, 15:30 – 16:15

We know that biodiversity net gains provide a significant opportunity for landowners to diversify their business, but how much can be earnt and how do you mitigate the risk?

One of the options farmers can diversify into is creating habitat banks, a parcel of land where they can create a significant uplift in biodiversity. Typically they are created on low-yielding land between 10 to 100 hectares in size and can be made up of species-rich grassland, woodland, wetland, mixed scrub or rewilding sites.

They provide a secured and long-term income to landowners and a biologically diverse haven for nature.

In our latest agricultural webinar, Peter Snodgrass, Head of Agriculture and Jennie Wheildon, Director will be joined by Alexa Culver, General Counsel and Rob Wreglesworth, Principle Ecologist from the Environment Bank. This webinar will explore:

  • The legal considerations when establishing a Habitat Bank and entering into conservation covenants.

  • What the farm might look like from a legal perspective if you establish a Habitat Bank.

  • What is a Habitat Bank and what are the management requirements?

  • What are the commercial benefits of habitat creation?

  • How would a Habitat Bank work alongside current business/farming operations and sources of funding?

  • Can Habitat Banks help achieve net-zero targets?

  • How land agents can benefit from the Environment Bank model?

  • The key tax implications for creating a Habitat Bank.

This is a live webinar but if you wish to put your questions forward in advance, please email these to events@shma.co.uk

Employment Law Update for Schools

Webinar | Education

About This Webinar

Tuesday 14 June, 09:30 - 10:15

When the pandemic struck, the world changed and schools had to quickly react. Since then, home working, remote learning, vaccinations and COVID-19 related absences have continued to throw a wrench in the return to normality for many educational establishments.

In our latest schools-focused webinar, we will highlight important and current employment law topics that leaders, bursars and HR managers of independent schools and academies need to be aware of and can expect going forward.

  • Key employment tribunal cases

  • Flexible and hybrid working arrangements

  • An overview of recent government consultations

  • Horizon gazing at employment law changes coming down the track

HRD Forum

Webinar Forum

About This Webinar

Thursday 05 May 2022, 08:30 - 10:00

We will be hosting our next HR forum on 5 May 2022, the forum will be a roundtable breakfast session which will be held virtually. The idea being, we want the participation from all the delegates to share experiences in your day-to-day business leadership and HR role.

Managing long-term sickness is often a tricky process for employers, and there are a number of pitfalls which need to be avoided. This round table discussion will focus on the need to address long-term sickness without delay, and in what circumstances capability dismissals are appropriate. Tied to this, we recognise that settlement agreements can be a useful tool for employers where disciplinary and capability processes turn sour, and employers wish to mitigate the impact of claims against them. We will also look at how to properly navigate the discussions relating to settlements being offered (i.e. protected and without prejudice conversations), the pitfalls to avoid and best-practice for getting settlement agreements over the line.

Who Should Attend

This event will be aimed at HR directors and leaders.

While this event is by invite only, if you are interested in attending please contact the events team.

Knowing your employment basics

Webinar | Agriculture

About This Webinar

Tuesday 10 May, 09:30 - 10:15

We are seeing an ever increasing rise in the number of Employment Tribunal claims being brought by aggrieved employees, and the agricultural sector is no exception.

Often an important factor contributing to an employee's decision to bring a claim is that the basics have been missed or misapplied.

In this webinar, Helen Hughes and Helen Molloy will take a look at some of the fundamentals of the employment relationship to help you check that you have the basics covered to minimise the risk of such claims including:

  • Contracts – and what has to go in them

  • Managing long and short term absence

  • How to handle disciplinaries and grievances 

  • National Minimum Wage, holidays and auto enrolment

  • Workplace disputes involving harassment including race and nationality discrimination

If you wish to put your questions forward in advance, please email these to events@shma.co.uk

Who Should Attend

How do registered providers make sites more financially viable?

Webinar | Retirement living

About This Webinar

Wednesday 06 April, 09:30 - 10:15

The global pandemic has had a profound effect on people’s lives, with many reappraising the type of lifestyle they want to have as they get older. A recent survey by Housing LIN has shown that more than one in four homeowners aged over 65 would “definitely or maybe [be] likely to move to a retirement community”, after being shown the lifestyle and facilities on offer. Based on the latest population numbers for over-65s, this already equates to more than 2.5 million people potentially wanting a retirement community home.

The challenge for registered providers is how do you get the balance of having the right product, designed for the right people and in the right location? What are the must haves and what are the ‘would like to haves’ that could make the scheme unviable in the long term.

In this webinar Louise Drew, our Head of Building Communities at Shakespeare Martineau, will be joined by Darren Clarke from Arcadis, Phil Schmid from CBRE, Ian Mellor from Pozzoni Architects and Francis Burrows from Orbit.

Our panel will explore:

  • Funding – we will explore the variety of funding structures available that offer flexible and low cost funding solutions for developments – debt is not the only option

Misconduct outside the workplace and business disrepute

Webinar | Employment

About This Webinar

Thursday 08 September, 09:30 - 10:15
How can employers reduce the risk of damage to their reputation?

If an employee's conduct outside of the workplace potentially damages a company's reputation, then the employee can be said to be bringing the company into disrepute. Which in turn may give the employer legal cause to take disciplinary action.

In this webinar, Mike Hibbs – Partner and Danielle Humphries - Solicitor in our Employment team will discuss the key employment law considerations and potential pitfalls. We will cover:

  • Legal framework – unfair dismissal

  • When does employee’s conduct outside of work become relevant to their employer?

  • What should employers do if an employee is suspected of bringing the employer into disrepute?

  • Policies, procedures, and planning your investigation

This is a live event and there will be an opportunity for questions and answers on the day; if you wish, you may also forward your questions in advance to events@shma.co.uk.

Who Should Attend

HR directors and professionals, business owners and senior managers with responsibility for people management.

Changes to agricultural law – what it means for charities

Webinar | Charities

About This Webinar

Thursday 17 March 2022, 9:30 - 10:15

Farming has a long history of government subsidy and whilst the UK was part of the European Union that subsidy was governed under the Common Agricultural Policy with what many will know as the basic payment scheme.  However, with the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, we have entered a period of transition where by the direct payments under CAP will be phased out by the end of 2027 and it will be replaced with a whole new system of environmental land management (ELMs) introduced in the Agriculture Act 2020.

This new system whilst it is being referred to as a replacement subsidy it is not being provided on a like for like basis and we see the introduction of a new farming system based on public money for public goods.

This webinar will provide an overview of this new system and how this might apply to charities operating within the agriculture sector. We will explore:

  • For those charities with investments in agriculture land how these changes may shape conversations with your tenants or land managers

  • We will touch on what other opportunities might be available to help maximise the financial return from rural land

This is a live event and there will be an opportunity for questions and answers on the day; if you wish, you may also forward your questions in advance to events@shma.co.uk.

Who Should Attend

This webinar will be of interest to charities and charitable organisations with agricultural land and/ or with objectives that centre around the furtherance of agriculture or horticulture.

Our Speaker

Agriculture

Family, farms and business are intrinsically linked in the agriculture and rural affairs sector.

HRD Forum

Webinar Forum

About This Webinar

Thursday 27 January 2022, 08:30 - 10:00

Millions of people across the UK have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, but many remain unwilling to be jabbed. As part of our newly-formed HRD Forum, we will focus on managing the anti-vaccination stance in the workplace, and dealing with COVID-related absences and refusals to attend work.

Our invitation-only forum group – which is held quarterly over breakfast – is built up of clients and connections who come together to share their experiences in their day-to-day business leadership and HR roles. The participative sessions were set up as we value our clients’ contributions and insights into their industry.

In our first discussion, we will also address the legality of mandatory vaccination policies in the context of different workplace settings, as well as look at how to effectively manage refusals to enter the workplace on COVID grounds and how best to avoid these issues cropping up.

Who Should Attend

This event will be aimed at HR directors and leaders.

While this event is by invite only, if you are interested in attending please contact the events team.

Brexit one year on: what's changed for the UK Immigration System?

Webinar | Brexit

About This Webinar

Thursday 20 January 2022, 9:30 - 10:00
We are now one year since the Brexit transition period ended and the UK officially left the EU. Our UK immigration system has been completely reformed from 2021 to cater for the end of free movement of EU citizens to the UK and employers have had to re-consider recruitment strategies, particularly those heavily reliant on a EU workforce.
In this webinar, we will look back at:
  • Key points and learnings of the sponsorship system over the last 12 months

  • What the future of the UK immigration system will look like and how businesses can prepare

  • We will also update you on changes expected in Spring 2022 when the Home Office’s transition period for the remote right to work checks ends, the introduction of new visas routes on the horizon, and looking into the future, specifically the new digitising of the UK Border in years to come.

There is much more change coming in 2022. Businesses must ensure they are ready to make the most of opportunities, steer clear of any fines which potentially can be up to £20,000, and also ensure recruitment strategies and policies are up to date.
Our speakers are Tijen Ahmet and Calum Hanrahan, both immigration specialists who work with global and UK businesses advising on strategic international recruitment, immigration compliance, facilitating work assignments and relocation to the UK.

If you wish to put your questions forward in advance, please email these to events@shma.co.uk.

Who Should Attend

This webinar is aimed at HRDs, Global Mobility Managers, HR & Immigration Managers, Risk & Compliance Managers and private individuals who wish to visit or settle in the UK.

Our Speaker

UK Right to Work checks have changed - What you need to know

Jab or no jab - mock employment tribunal

Webinar | Employment

About This Webinar

Wednesday 29 September, 9:30 - 12:30 BST

Join us for a three hour virtual employment mock tribunal as we lead you through a role play scenario leaving you to weigh up the evidence and see if your decision on the outcome agrees with the judge.

The scenario will be based on a fictional COVID-19 related employment tribunal claim concerning unfair dismissal, and health and safety.  It will be fully interactive, informative and myth-busting and will give you the opportunity, within a safe environment, to see how an employment tribunal works and how decisions are reached.

Our guest speaker

Changez Khan is a Barrister at No5 Barristers, and will be our Barrister for this tribunal.

This is a live event and there will be an opportunity for questions and answers on the day; if you wish, you may also forward your questions in advance to events@shma.co.uk.

Who Should Attend

Delegates from all sectors of industry including: managers, supervisors, team leaders, HR professionals, business owners, Trade Union representatives, employee representatives and individuals who wish to enhance their CPD.

Tailored solutions for every eventuality

Our experienced employment solicitors are perfectly placed to help you navigate a wide range of employment law issues. We provide solutions that are tailored to the requirements of your organisation.

Retirement housing: Why is the supply of housing with care so limited in Scotland and what will it take to boost it?

Webinar | Retirement housing

About This Webinar

Tuesday 23 November 2021, 16:30 - 17:15 BST

Scotland's population is ageing. The number of people aged 75 and over is set to increase 85% by 2039. It means that, by then, over 800,000 people will be over the age of 75. Currently there is only enough housing with care stock to cater for roughly 1% of over 75's versus other countries such as New Zealand where there's enough for 14%.

Age appropriate housing is essential in ensuring quality of life for many vulnerable older adults and yet the housing with care sector in Scotland is almost non existent. Housing with care is not a solution for everyone, but it is an essential part of the housing mix and for many people who do choose to live in these schemes, their quality of life is excellent.

Recent investment in the housing with care sector in England is indicative of the fact that investors are recognising the opportunity. How can Scotland attract investment and what role does the state play in stimulating supply?

In this webinar we will be joined by Andrew Fyfe, Co-founder of Sovereign Property Partnership, Dr Vikki McCall, Senior lecturer at University of Stirling, Paul Harries, Executive Chairman at Life Care Residences and a panel of other experts to discuss:

  • Why there is a supply shortage and what the state can do to intervene.

  • New Zealand v Scotland - Identifying why the two nations are comparable and focusing on a case study of one major operator to examine whether this model would work for Scotland.

  • What are the challenges in Scotland from an operator/ developer perspective?

  • What are the common legal obstacles and possible solutions to implement event fees in Scotland?

This is a live webinar and there will be questions and answers at the end but if you wish to put your questions forward in advance, please email these to events@shma.co.uk.

Who Should Attend

Registered providers, investors, private developers, care home operators, social housing providers who are either looking to develop in Scotland or gain a better understanding of these challenges and opportunities.

Read our retirement housing white paper

We conducted one of the UK's largest consumer perception surveys in the retirement housing sector.

As experts in retirement housing and later living, we wanted to gain a better understanding of what the public thinks about retirement housing schemes and what the industry can do better to raise profile and encourage consumer adoption of these schemes.
