Belbin Accreditation is recommended for anyone who wants to use Belbin Team Roles to improve the performance of teams, and maximise working relationships.


By attending the Accreditation course, you will discover the real Belbin – and gain the depth of knowledge and practical tools to present yourself as a true Belbin expert.


The course culminates in a 40-minute test. On passing the test, you will be awarded a certificate signed by your trainer and Dr Meredith Belbin, and access to a logo that shows that you are Belbin Accredited. The Accreditation stays with YOU, so it is a real investment in your future.

 Belbin Accreditation Logo to prove you are a Belbin expert!


Once you are Accredited, we won't leave you stranded. You will gain access to an exclusive 'Accredited Only' webpage which contains the slides and resources that you need to start using Belbin with individuals, teams and organisations. We keep in touch and guide you through those first few Belbin Reports and team session agendas.


Other benefits of becoming Belbin Accredited include three free Belbin Reports (worth £105 + VAT) and a lower price when purchasing the Belbin Reports in the future.

A bit more detail: Why should I become Belbin Accredited?

Discover the real Belbin

You will find that there is more to Belbin than just nine Team Roles – strengths, allowable/non-allowable weaknesses of each Role are explored in-depth, along with combinations of Team Roles, observer feedback, team overviews and job analysis.

Speak the language

The language of Team Roles will become second nature to you over the duration of the course, providing a useful basis to discuss possible team and individual issues.

Plan your workshops

We will give you practical ideas on how to use the reports and theory within a variety of workshops and situations, and how to interpret the reports for 1:1 and team feedback.

Share your knowledge

Your newly acquired depth of knowledge and understanding will hold you in good stead when fielding questions from the more demanding course delegate!

Ongoing backup

Once Accredited you’re not alone! If you have any questions regarding the reports – perhaps some advice on how to feedback a particularly interesting profile – or to get some top tips for session ideas, you are encouraged to call the Belbin office. We are here to help.

Further benefits include:

  • A signed certificate from Meredith Belbin on passing the Accreditation test
  • Use of the Belbin Accredited Logo (subject to terms and conditions)
  • Access to the Belbin Accredited website; full of resources, offers, advice and a shop!
