WORKSHOP 1

"INVESTIGATING BIAS IN SCOUTING"
Stopping Mistakes Before They Happen!

There are no prerequisite for this workshop

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 as an amateur or professional in the football world  of scouting & analysis it will even enlighten the experienced professionals. 

We will delve into the Psychological Aspects of analysis when looking at players or teams. 

We at IPSO believe everyone involved in football should participate on this workshop whether it be scouts, coaches, analysts, managers, technical directors and agents.

WHY? 

Simple it will stop you making mistakes that you didn’t even know you did when 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 or team.

WHY IPSO?

Our main aim at IPSO is to provide the appropriate tools and knowledge that will make you a better amateur or professional football person within the game. 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 football world with the help of our growing worldwide network of contacts. We help aspiring amateurs or professionals 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.

QUOTES FROM STUDENTS AFTER PARTICIPATING
