Other options: In-house Accreditation

Maybe there are a group of you from the same organisation who are interested in becoming Belbin Accredited - always advisable so all the Belbin responsibility and knowledge isn't just on one person's shoulders!

We can arrange for you to become Accredited together. This option gives you the opportunity to share your learning with colleagues and discuss how you can apply Belbin to best effect in your organisation.

The in-house Accreditation can be held online or at your workplace, and is for groups of four or more.

The cost will vary depending on the number of participants, but it is the most cost-effective way of becoming Accredited.

"I just wanted to say that you're [Leena Shalloe] such a wonderful trainer. You gave so many real life examples that made the information sink in really quickly and easily and gave it so much passion and humour. I've done courses like this before and it was disorganised and hard to pick up. Thank you so much for your time and expertise!"

Why become Belbin accredited?

 Belbin accreditation has a whole host of benefits.

  • Find your feet... and field those difficult questions with confidence

You'll discover that there is more to Belbin than just nine Team Roles. We'll cover Team Role theory in depth, including the characteristics of each role, Team Role combinations, observer feedback, team overviews, job analysis and much more. The course material will stand you in good stead when fielding questions from the more demanding course delegate!
