Why do Management, Leading & Personal Effectiveness training with QA?

QA’s Managing, Leading & Personal Effectiveness (MLPE) practice offers a diverse curriculum, credibility and experience in the marketplace that demonstrates that we understand the people side of tech. We understand and support digital transformation.

We offer a wide range of course topics that support individual specialists and teams, individuals transitioning to management and leadership positions, and leaders supporting digital transformation. For example, individuals attending our courses will learn how to:

  • Manage and lead in uncertain and challenging times
  • Transition from being technical experts to leading and managing teams
  • Improve their own digital productivity
  • Adopt mind-sets designed for self-management and growth
  • Understand how to lead through digital disruption

In addition to our standard programmes, we can create tailored bespoke programmes, private courses and integrated solutions to contextualise the learning and balance the people-tech capability gaps in your organisation. Our flexibility means we can incorporate agile leadership and digital skills such as Power BI and cloud literacy, and we choose from many learning methods to deliver forward-thinking learning.

Learning with QA creates sustainable performance driven by individual employee and business purpose. We look for causation between learning, action and impact. Every concept taught is meaningful and traceable to value, learner by learner. 

Our MLPE learning experts are always scanning for new topics and trends and developing new and updating existing solutions to keep us relevant and current.

Bespoke solutions

Tailored solutions for MLPE


We ensure we understand your organisation's background and current situation and how this is impacting the target audience behaviour and expectations. This understanding helps position ideas, concepts, tools and frameworks in the learners’ context. At QA we have the ability to place your organisation's issues, situations, challenges and opportunities (ISCOs) centre stage within learning content, which matches your specific agenda and required business impact.


Many clients want their training interventions to fit in with their culture as well as their existing programmes and initiatives. QA can personalise training materials, including your livery, logo and language and link the learning to your own internal values or skills frameworks and resources.

Mixing and matching content

We can use, blend and reflow existing learning from various topic areas to suit your needs. 

Private public schedule

If your organisation has enough learners, we can run a public schedule course as a closed cohort – just for you. We're able to place your organisation's ISCOs centre stage and our delivery team can focus on what you need to make happen to have a specific business impact.

Bespoke solutions

We can co-create a bespoke solution to address your organisation's needs and preferences in terms of content, flow and delivery. We use innovative approaches and can draw on a blend of our standard content, content from a number of sources including your organisation's, and integrate new or non-standard content that is developed specifically for your needs. 


Our Professional Management apprenticeships

We offer a selection of management and leadership apprenticeships through QA Higher Education.
