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.


‘‘Wow the content is brilliant not basic! Exactly what I wanted to learn’’

‘‘They TEACH you to scout & analyse, not just show you’’

‘‘The workshops are better than some courses I’ve been on”

 ”The materials are worth the participation fee alone’’

‘‘It’s worth going on especially for agents/intermediaries to make new contacts in high positions’’

‘‘They make you feel very comfortable regardless of your experience’’

‘‘At every step they made sure everyone understood what was being taught.’’

”If that’s a workshop, i can’t wait to see the courses”

‘‘It was like talking to your mates the tutors are great’’

‘‘It will transform your understanding of the game and teach you how to analyse football in ways you never considered before’’
