new developments in live in class courses.

The course is a look into young football players in their development from their youth at grassroots level to pro-academies all the way up to under 23 football. It is developed by Premier League Scouts and Heads of Recruitment touching on all aspects when looking at young players in a more accurate and detailed calculation of the player.

The course will delve into key areas vitally important to football scouting & analysis at youth level. It explores sophisticated scouting strategies and procedures that will improve any coach, scout, analyst, manager, technical director and is a massive help for football agents after their evaluation of the young player.

From a coaches point of view they will gain clearer observation skills to help their players and their own progress in their development. It shows you how to make justified, evidence based decisions when improving or recruiting players to your club. It will also show the most effective ways to manage any young player’s development.

This course helps students especially coaches improve their analysis of young players with a more accurate outlook, therefore affecting their own coaching procedures when coaching any young players. By assessing quicker, it improves the player quicker meeting the player’s individual needs with a more professional result. 

This also helps parents or agents understand the player’s needs when assessing their young player with the attention to detail process that is needed. The program will allow you to share knowledge and experiences with other scouts and explore how world-leading clubs and academies operate.

We also have the added bonus of it being  a worldwide qualification endorsed by the YMCA please check here: https://ipsofootball.com/ymca-certification/ 


After Completing The Course

We can now provide our students FREE TICKETS for games in the football league due to a new partnership with Newport County FC. This partnership enables our students to go and watch games from the football league to non-league to gain that added value of practicing before looking to get a job as a scout or analyst.

This great incentive provides that missing link between finishing a course and looking for a job in the scouting.

What you should not do is jump in at the deep end and go working for a club straight away as you have only just passed or completed the courses so a more measured approach is advisable. 

We advise you practice through scouting for Newport with IPSO so any minor mistakes or drawbacks will not be looked upon in a bad way were you may lose your job or be frowned upon basically defeating the object and losing that chance to work for a club or more importantly being blacklisted before you get going. What we will do here is give you professional feedback on your work until its up to speed and your portfolio is created to help you become the professional scout and get a paid job withing scouting.

A great idea! We agree as the IPSO aftercare is second to none making sure your looked after on your journey so you receive the best football education on the market.

You will also get a pass to ensure you get into games through the IPSO & Newport partnership.



The scouting pass gained once passing the courses. Go to games under the umbrella of IPSO & Newport County

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.

Quotes from students after participating:

‘‘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’’


What you will find on the IPSO workshops and courses are:

The professionalism & experience of the tutors.

The strength of the content in materials on the workshop or course.

The added bonuses of free products Jobs4football, Metrica, Noisefeed, Footballersglobal,

The aftercare and help provided after participating.

The methodology and easy descriptive learning to understand clearly.

The world-wide contacts you will gain and meet.

The interactions to ask questions you want to know there and then.

Past students will clarify all this with the attention to detail we go into.
