"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!

  • 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.

"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

From Dr Meredith Belbin

"I think we've always been striving to find a way of helping people to work together. When people work in effective combinations they achieve so much more than when they're working alone. But to do that, we need a language, and it needs to be a language which is shared and enables people to communicate with one another."
