Discover the real Belbin. Gain the depth of knowledge and practical tools to position yourself as a certified Belbin expert.

Belbin accreditation is recommended for anyone who uses – or wants to use – Belbin Team Roles as part of their training toolkit.

Whether you're an HR, L&D or training professional, or an independent facilitator, coach or management consultant, Belbin accredited certification – online or face-to-face – will give you a solid grounding in Belbin theory, and confidence in delivering report feedback and team workshops.

"I am enormously proud and grateful to offer Belbin Team Roles to my clients, and to continue my personal development from its perspective. It's easily among my top three life-changing trainings."

Janet Cook | You On A Team

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!

  • Invest in yourself, and your future

Wherever your career takes you, your Belbin accreditation stays with you, so it's a real investment in your future. Upon passing the accreditation test, you'll be sent a certificate signed by your trainer and Dr Meredith Belbin, and given access to an exclusive logo (subject to terms and conditions).

  • Once you've passed the course, we want to do everything we can to help you on your Belbin journey. That's why we offer three Belbin reports (worth £105 + VAT) and discounts on all future purchases of Belbin reports.
  • Become part of the Belbin community

Our Belbin accredited community enjoys exclusive access to an 'Accredited Only' area on our website, which includes the resources you need to start using Belbin with your people, our latest offers and a shop for purchasing discounted products and services.

Accreditation course outline

The course covers:

  • The origin, theory and definition of the nine Belbin Team Roles
  • The relationships between the Belbin Team Roles
  • How to generate and understand the key Belbin Team Role reports
  • How to interpret and analyse Belbin Team Role reports (using your own reports if possible)
  • Uses to which Belbin Team Roles can be applied, e.g. teambuilding, personal and organisational development, coaching, recruitment, training needs and job analysis
  • Practical exercises on giving feedback to individuals and teams
  • Use of case studies to show how to use the model to improve individual and team effectiveness

As far as possible, we will tailor aspects of the course to the particular needs of attendees. We use presentations, discussion, DVDs, practical exercises and games to facilitate learning.

There is a test at the end of the course, which takes about 60 minutes to complete.


"The accreditation was truly excellent. Belbin is so intuitive as a framework and the way the course was structured and delivered made it feel easy to absorb a lot of information."


David Bowen-Davies | Owner and Founder, Actualise Performance and Wellbeing Training
