Accreditation in The Belbin Model

Many clients have expressed interest in becoming officially accredited in the Belbin Team Role Model. This is an incredibly useful and internationally recongised certification for HR and L&D professionals as well as any executive, leader or person seeking a "deep dive" understanding and highly deployable skill-set with this model.

Sabre Corporate Development is a Regional Representative for Belbin and offers official Accreditation / Certification in the Belbin Team Role Model (the original Team Role Model, recognised world-wide and also available in many languages).

The Accreditation course is aimed at professionals who use or are planning to use Belbin Team Role Theory and / or reports and profiles as part of their training and consultancy toolkit or within their own organisations.
