Help them discover their strengths
Belbin GetSet gives students the edge. And in increasingly competitive educational and working environments, that’s just what they need.
Belbin GetSet prepares teenagers and young adults for the next stage of their education or career, by helping them to learn about themselves and their behaviours. It shows them where their strengths lie and what they have to offer now and in the future, building their confidence and promoting self-understanding.
Whether applying for an apprenticeship or composing a personal statement for university application forms, Belbin GetSet offers students a way to describe the unique qualities they have to offer – a language to use about themselves which will resonate with professionals and help to enhance their career prospects.
We’ve been helping students, individuals and companies for years.
Find out where they fit in
Belbin Team Roles – theory and practice – are the result of decades of research into individual differences, teams and what makes people tick. From recruitment to personal development, teambuilding and conflict resolution, we know people and we know teams. Our student reports are specially designed to educate, encourage and prepare students for what lies ahead.
Students complete a short questionnaire and receive a report which identifies their strengths and how to use them to best advantage. The Belbin GetSet report offers personalised guidance and advice on the student’s preferred working styles, where they might fit in a team and how to use this knowledge to best effect over the coming years. They can also ask friends to complete a shorter questionnaire, so that they gain insight into others’ views of their behavioural contributions. This can help students to understand areas for development and how to cultivate latent abilities that others see.
Belbin GetSet has been helping students since 1998. With a brand new version ready for launch in 2017, there’s never been a better time to begin the Belbin GetSet journey.CONTACT US
WHAT GETSET CAN DO
For those entering Sixth Form or Further Education, outlining strengths and key contributions increases self-awareness and sets them off on a firm footing for the next stage of their academic careers. Introducing the concepts of teamwork and peer review assists with group-based learning and builds on key skills.
For those entering Higher Education, Belbin GetSet is an invaluable resource for preparing UCAS application forms. Along with comprehensive advice and guidance, the report is set in a workbook that comprises key points and questions designed to help formulate a personal summary.
For those applying for apprenticeships or work placements, Belbin GetSet gets students thinking about what they can contribute in the world of work and how to operate successfully within a team. It describes their preferred working styles and how to show others what they have to offer, so that they’re engaged in the work they’re doing and able to get the most out of their placement.
Belbin GetSet offers a unique opportunity to understand the behavioural needs and contributions of individual students and provides a crucial resource for PSHE classes. We also provide step-by-step feedback guides, and a comprehensive lesson plan, so you can help students digest the key information and answer any questions they might have about Belbin GetSet and the reports.

Belbin GetSet helps students with the following key skills:
Working with others
Improving own learning
Careers guidance and inspiration
The Department for Education in the UK outlines the provisions that schools need to make in providing careers guidance and inspiration to all pupils, to help them fulfil their potential.
Here’s a few ways Belbin GetSet can help deliver.
Pupils need to be stretched and acquire ‘the attributes that employers value’. With its focus on teamworking and the opportunity to receive feedback from peers, Belbin GetSet promotes greater self-understanding. It encourages students to be open-minded about others’ views of their contributions, and helps students build their strengths from their school and college careers into attributes that can make for a happy and successful career.
Schools should encourage pupils to “develop their decision-making, team building and problem solving skills”. Belbin GetSet focuses on the contributions an individual can make to a team, including collating feedback from their peers on how they feel the individual works best in a group setting. Learning about the nine Belbin Team Roles makes students aware of what others have to offer and how they can work productively with those whose styles are different to their own.
Schools should help pupils “gain the confidence to compete in the labour market by providing opportunities to gain the […] attributes that are relevant for employment.” Belbin GetSet helps students establish a “professional identity” which builds on the strengths they’ve shown at school, college or university and translates these into real-world contributions. Armed with knowledge of how they work best, and a language to describe those styles, students can present themselves in a professional manner. With the language of Belbin used by professionals all over the world, Belbin GetSet can also assist employers in identifying where someone might best fit in their team or organisation, leading to greater recognition and engagement at work.

HOW IT WORKS
Here’s an overview of the Belbin process your students will follow, from start to finish. We’re here to help every step of the way.

3. Request Observers
Upon completion of the questionnaire, students are asked to invite up to 6 friends who know them well to complete a quick 5-minute questionnaire about them. This is an integral part of the Belbin process and is included in the cost of each report.
4. Receive the report
You can have reports e-mailed directly to the student, to you, or both. The report comes in a workbook, giving detailed personal guidance and advice based on the student’s Team Role behaviours.
5. Complete the workbook
The workbook guides the student through the report, helping them reflect on the information contained within it, and compile a personal statement at the end.
6. Share roles and
find out more
Once students know their preferred Team Roles, they can choose to share their results on social media.
“The terminology that Belbin uses is very straightforward so it is generally the preferred language with the business school students whom I teach. As such, they incorporate the information in their case studies, decision making and reflection and I can see that the concepts move them forward in their thinking.” – Audrey Tang, Click Training
