About: At IPSO we are challenging you to explore our workshops. We are showing you small workshops for a small price to show you our products, the way we deliver our methodology and our materials. It’s very simple if you don’t like what you see (Don’t come on our courses) and you have not wasted a substantial amount of money for what you may think are substandard courses (basic) were you feel you didn’t gain the information you needed and you have felt it wasn’t value for money.

WE ARE THE ONLY SCOUTING COMPANY OFFERING THIS UNIQUE OFFER! ‘‘It’s an eye opener’’ & ‘‘better than a lot of courses’’ quotes from students.

These workshops are about areas in scouting and analysis that you have to cover in scouting.

Workshop 1 in BIAS is a ‘‘super important’’ workshop explaining that most people watching football are bias without even knowing it (including people in the game), we explain the consequences of not understanding bias in scouting and analysis.

The next 3 workshops are all great introductions to our courses. Explained more clearly below.

Workshop 1
"Investigating Bias in Scouting"

We will look to demonstrate how you could display prejudice against a player or team without really knowing it. Whether it be for good reasons or bad reasons. This is a MUST for anyone starting off in scouting and it will even enlighten the experienced scouts. We will delve into the psychology aspects of analysis when looking at players. We at IPSO believe everyone involved in football should go on this workshop whether it be scouts, coaches, analysts, agent or even the manager. Why? Simple it will stop you making mistakes that you didn’t even know you did while analysing and watching players at any level. We will point out the unnoticed Bias you may hold on or against a player that could cost you dearly in the future. We will look at this from a football perspective proving the wrongs you do without you noticing it when looking at a player.

Workshop 2
"Evaluating Young Players & Team Shapes"

We will look at how to evaluate a young player in talent identification. This workshop is an insight to our live TID course of how to assess a young player from the ages of 6 to under 23 football from grassroots to the professional game. This is a good understanding to see the difference when looking at young players compared to senior players at any level. We will show you the procedure when looking for potential at various ages with an age specific scouting procedure. After this we will show you the importance of understanding team shapes and positions before analysing a player.

Workshop 3
"Exploring Detailed Player Analysis"

This is all about first team level scouting that shows you how our Level 1 course works and the ‘‘Attention to Detail’’ needed when assessing players around the first team environment. We will show you the detailed analysis clubs and associations go into when analysing senior players. This detailed workshop shows you what makes a difference from one player to another whether it’s good or bad and it will show you the thought process when assessing these players. Deep analysis for the scouts, agents, coaches, managers or the avid fan who wants to take it to the next level.

Workshop 4
"Analysing Match Reporting'"

We are going to analyse the match report. This is a look into the live Level 2 course. We are going to show you how it’s made, the detail that needs to go into it, the procedure and structure of a match report but most importantly how important the report is for the manager and how to beat the opposition. This detailed workshop lifts the lid on how difficult this match report is to make and the amount of knowledge and experience needed to make a high standard report.

Our main aim at IPSO is to provide the appropriate tools and the knowledge that will make you a better football scout, analyst or coach. But we don’t just stop there, after you take our courses you are part of the IPSO Family.

We pride ourselves of helping our students progress their way into the scouting & analysis world with the help of our growing worldwide network of contacts. We help aspiring scouts, analysts or coaches find their first job in the game by teaching the procedures and the techniques with ”Attention to Detail” that professionals use.

Our courses are endorsed worldwide by the YMCA Awards which makes our diplomas an official document recognized as Education Providers.

What’s the difference between us and other providers? What do we offer?

Someone’s Level 3 course may not be as strong as someone’s Level 1? Don’t think all courses are the same?

The best way to find out about why we differ and why ‘‘we make a difference’’ is to speak to other students who have participated on other workshops and courses from different providers, quite easy to do on social media these days especially on LinkedIn & Facebook.
