Help your teenager understand, promote, and articulate their strengths - give your teenager the language of Belbin.
Based on the well-known and established theory of Belbin Team Roles, Belbin GetSet helps young people learn about themselves and their behaviours and gives them the confidence to project themselves in a positive way.
It gives young people the edge. And in increasingly uncertain and competitive educational and working environments, that is just what they need.
Belbin GetSet prepares young people (aged 15 to 19) 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 and wellbeing.
From applying for an apprenticeship or composing a personal statement for university/college applications, to improving wellbeing and teamworking, Belbin GetSet will help your teenager articulate their strengths and stand out from the crowd.
How it works
After completing a short online questionnaire, your teenager will receive a Belbin GetSet Workbook identifying their strengths and talents. This will help them understand how they might learn and work best, providing personalised advice and guidance on how to play to their strengths in application processes, at interview and when they make their next steps.
Some pages from the Belbin GetSet Workbook
To receive a more detailed Belbin GetSet Workbook, your teenager can ask for feedback from their school friends.
We recommend that your teenager asks for feedback from their school friends only if this is something they are comfortable with. We suggest that teenagers ask for feedback when they are in Year 12 and above. There is no additional charge for this, and once six people have fed back, a new and updated Belbin GetSet Workbook will be sent to you, free of charge.

More about Belbin
In the 1960s Dr Meredith Belbin and his team of researchers identified nine different clusters of behaviours that were needed in the workplace. They called these behaviours Belbin Team Roles. Since then, organisations, universities and colleges world-wide have been teaching, and more importantly, using Belbin Team Roles, to help people identify their Belbin Team Role strengths, and learn how to use them when working with others.
Belbin Team Roles can be used in two ways – to help managers articulate what they need in terms of work, and to help individuals understand where they can make their best contribution in the workplace.
