Most in-house leadership and management development is undertaken by employers (especially among medium-sized and large employers). It tends to focus on specific knowledge and skills needed to achieve a strategic priority or address an operational requirement or weakness.

After the appointment, their training rarely leads to a qualification, despite the advantages this can offer.
Some individual managers make a personal investment in management qualifications to help their career progression and as part of their continuous professional development. However, those provided by employers are more likely to be aligned to the business's specific needs and, as a result, are also more likely to result in increased productivity and the application of learning in the workplace.
Qualifications have two significant advantages from an employer's point of view:
1. They provide evidence that real, deep learning has taken place to a standard that is subject to robust quality assurance
2. They motivate JLBC leaders and JLBC managers to acquire new knowledge and skills.

There are two broad types of leadership and management qualifications available – those provided by professional bodies and by other general awarding bodies, through networks of independent centers (colleges, universities, training companies, and corporate training departments), and qualifications provided by the University Business Schools.
