As a world-wide provider for Scouting and Analysis courses including Talent Identification IPSO have decided to join forces with non-league St Blazey of the South West Peninsula League.

IPSO have travelled the world and delivered courses at Premier League clubs Leicester City and Crystal Palace but have also delivered courses at Sunderland FC, the IFBI (International Football Business Institute) in Brussels, Budapest Honved, Mol Vidi FC, FC both Hungarian clubs with Mol Vidi the reigning champions, Slavia Prague the Czech Republic champions who take on Chelsea in the Europa league next week, add to that Beijing, Shanghai (China), Kansas (USA), Vancouver (Canada) and you can see the experience they are bringing to little non league club St Blazey.

How did this come about?

It all started with the chief scout of St Blazey Dan Bent attending one of the IPSO courses in Scotland. Such was his experience and enjoyment of the courses Dan didn’t hesitate get in touch with one of the directors of IPSO Colin Chambers asking if it was possible to deliver a course with them. He mastered a plan to see if he could bring IPSO to Cornwall and to his small but highly respected club in the South West Peninsula League.

After speaking with IPSO It was a no brainer said the Mr Chambers’’ We are an educational company and we would be honoured to come to a small club like St Blazey to show we are not just about collaborating big with high profile clubs. We deliver educational programs and we would love to give something to the non-league by highlighting St Blazey and doing a few courses at their club.’’

Done deal and a great signing for ST Blazey said Dan. This will really help the club and the area, I’m so pleased this is taking place. We are going to start with the IPSO Level 1 course to show coaches and interested parties just how good IPSO courses are and how useful they will be in this area of the country. We will then roll out TID courses and IPSO have also promised a discount of 30% to all the young people under the age of 21 or at university or college to try to give something back to the young people in today’s society. This will help in many ways said Dan ’’1 it will link us with colleges and universities, 2 its giving the people of Devon & Cornwall something we think is short of in this area for our coaches and football enthusiasts. 3 It shows who we are, where we are at and where we want to be. Lots of things could develop from this partnership, it’s a great coupe for us’’
