You can join a variety of different types of Belbin training from introductory “How to…” sessions, to full Accreditation courses leading to you becoming a certified Belbin trainer

Belbin Accreditation

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.

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 South Africa 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 and advice.

‘How To…’ Sessions

(Only Available from October 2018)

Regular 1-day ‘How To…” Belbin Training sessions are run for those people who would like to turn Belbin theory into practical business outcomes.

Turn Belbin theory into practical business outcomes

We now have a session that will give you all the theory you need, alongside the practical stuff – exercises and ideas on how to use the language of Belbin in a practical way, everyday, in the workplace.

In summary, by the end of the session you will:

  • Understand the strengths and weaknesses of each of the Belbin Team Roles;
  • Have gained practical knowledge of how to use the Belbin Reports to bring about business improvements;
  • Understand how to use Belbin to enhance both individual and team performance;
  • Be able to replicate exercises and feel confident running your own Belbin session.

And you will also leave with:

  • A resource pack (including slides and handouts) – to help you implement your learning when back at work;
  • Your own full Belbin Report (to be completed prior to the event);
  • Exercises that can be replicated back in the workplace;
  • A certificate of attendance.

Come and join us for our next one-day ‘How to…’ Session. Start using Belbin.

Bespoke Workshops

If your organization has a specific issue involving people or teams, we can devise and run a bespoke workshop to help you resolve the issue.

If you are experiencing problems with particular people or teams, then a bespoke Belbin Workshop could be the answer.

We look at the issues that are specific to your organization, and the people within it.  Then, using the Belbin theory, we build a bespoke workshop specifically designed to address the issues that you are facing.

Using a Belbin facilitator ensures that everyone can participate and maximize their contribution.

We facilitate sessions with teams at all levels, from boards of directors to new recruits.

A workshop will increase people’s understanding of themselves and their colleagues, helping to resolve conflict in the work environment and focusing the team on achieving its objectives more effectively.

The purpose of a team-building workshop is to increase communication and effectiveness within the team or group so that it achieves its objectives. The team will have a common language and a framework to discuss their collective strengths and how best to use them.

Who would benefit from attending a Belbin Workshop?

  • An existing team which needs to re-focus for a new challenge or strategy;
  • A new team which is not yet a cohesive unit;
  • A team in the aftermath of major change/re-organization;
  • A problematic team, where conflicts are getting in the way of effectiveness;
  • An international project team whose members only meet occasionally;
  • A high-performing team which wants to achieve even greater success.


Understanding Belbin Team Role behaviour is only the first step in creating a high-performing team.

Sharing that understanding with others, in a non-confrontational situation or exercise, is the next step. Our range of games and exercises provide the tools to make this happen.


Three exercises to help teams communicate and recognise their different contributions. Can be played with groups of up to 24 people.


A game designed to bring to life the typical features of each of the nine Team Roles. Can be played with up to nine people.

Team Role Alignment

By understanding how to interact with each of the nine Team Role behaviours, team members can build on and enhance their own working relationships to ensure that they are highly productive.

Fire, Toast and Teamwork DVD

The ultimate training companion when introducing Belbin, it illustrates each of the Team Roles and their place within the team.  Includes a training DVD, Trainers Guide, Exercises, Slides and Session Ideas.
