Belbin has been used in higher education for over 30 years.


Lecturers, Student Development Managers and Career and Employability advisors use Belbin to increase student self awareness, support academic performance and increase students’ global employability.


Here are three videos:

  • Esade explain how they have used Belbin to help their MSc students;
  • Rhona is a Senior Careers Adviser at University of Aberdeen, ILM Level 3 Coach, and Accredited Belbin Practitioner. We discuss the impact Belbin has had on the University of Aberdeen Leadership Academy and how Rhona has helped the students turn theory into action. This is a varied conversation which includes the changes in student 'learning gain', how they implemented learning with students from different faculties, and the benefit students have gained from the process of self-reflection;
  • We hear how two academics, from two different universities, in two different countries, met and put together a joint teaching and research project: offering students a unique opportunity to engage in global, international, and intercultural learning despite the COVID- 19 pandemic: 12 teams learning how to succeed in leading multicultural project teams.

There are also case-studies, along with some ideas of how you can start to use Belbin within your University / College / Business School further down the page.
