Scout In INDIA Trained by IPSO
IPSO are very proud to announce Nimesh Pitale who became the first professional scout trained by IPSO to gain a professional contract in scouting with Punjab FC who play in the I-League of India football.
Nimesh ‘s role is Associate Scout, Scouting Operations in Rounglass Punjab Football Club Responsible for Youth Scouting.
Nimesh started his quest to be a football scout a couple of years ago when he flew all the way from India to the CEE Cup that was taking place in Prague in the Czech Republic. At this event IPSO were delivering their Level 1 course in Scouting & Analysis. It was here that his journey truly began as he began to learn the ropes of scouting with the IPSO team.
After participating on the Level 1 course Nimesh decided to do every single workshop and course delivered by IPSO as he saw the education that he was presented with could change his career and his life in general. That’s exactly what happened and after countless workshops & courses Nimesh gained the knowledge that would propel him to the height’s of professional football in India.
Nimesh did 8 workshops, TID Foundation course, TID 6-23’s, Level 1, Level 2 and our Level 3 (performance analysis) to make sure he had everything covered. Hard work and dedication pays off.
From all the IPSO team we would like to congratulate Nimesh on the wonderful journey he encountered on to become what he is today a professional football scout.The IPSO Team

– I learned so much from them and firmly believe that ISPO gave me the skills and knowledge that has got me to where I am now. – says Makin.
– I had no real background in football prior to undertaking the courses but the many different aspects you learn from player analysis and report writing to match analysis will help anyone on the path to a career working in football. IPSO use Premier league experienced scouts and they are excellent people to learn from. They are supportive and helpful throughout the courses and beyond. What you learn from them will stand anyone in good stead. Great course and extremely fruitful as I have found out. – Sean said.
– This is not the first student of IPSO to attain a job after the course. So far we have managed to organise around 50 internships in Europe, and 15 of our students have been employed full-time by professional football clubs. Just recently two other former attendants have also gained jobs as scouts Michael Opiłka at Reading FC (English Championship) and Lee Hackett at Dagenham & Redbridge FC. (League 2 in England)

“From the time that I moved to the UK to complete my MSC in Football Coaching and Analysis at the UCFB I took the chance to participate on IPSO courses. I attended every seminar/workshop of theirs as I was so impressed from IPSO’s quality, and at the same time I noticed that I was improving and seeing things that I was missing during the game. If someone wants to improve their football knowledge and spot details that make a difference I would recommend IPSO the International Professional Scouting Organisation without hesitation.”

job at santos in brazil
Felipe Tricate Sader
About 2 years ago, I’ve made the biggest change in my life and moved to England to pursue my dream of studying and working with football. Thankfully, I can say that it was totally worth it.
”Thank you IPSO for all your support and teaching” said Felipe Tricate Sader Scout at Santos FC Brazil.
I’m now doing what I truly love and I’ve always dreamed about since the beginning of 2020: I am now a first team scout from one the biggest teams in Brazil Santos.
In order to be fully ready for this new challenge, I’ve decided to take the Level 1 Course in Football Scouting from IPSO back in Manchester in September 2019. Besides the great theoretical content, this course helped me to understand more about the live scouting experience.
Something completely new to me, since I was previously working inside an office for the past 5 years. The expertise from the teachers and the amazing interaction within the class were vital for me to extract everything I could from this 2-day live course.
IPSO definitely helped me to achieve my biggest professional goal.

HAPOEL RAMAT GAN IN ISRAEL
Tom Karaizman has recently started working as a Scout and Analyst for Israeli club Hapoel Ramat Gan soon after completing IPSO’s Level 2 Course in Porto.
“After learning about scouting and analysis in my country, I decided to take a step forward and enrolled in the IPSO level 2 course. In Portugal I was amazed by the high level of information and the excellent tools that we were given. What I learned in just a few days is information that has accumulated in many years of experience by lecturers who simply reveal all their secrets. There is no doubt that the tools I acquired in my studies at IPSO have contributed to the position I wanted so much and there is no day in my work that I don’t use the tools and knowledge I have acquired.”

HIRE LEE HACKET
Lee Hackett, a participant of both our courses of Level 1 and Level 2, was hired as a scout at Dagenham & Redbridge FC. Congratulations!
‘‘I have always enjoyed football since as long as I can remember. I heard about IPSO through a mutual friend and decided to go onto the IPSO course. I always wanted to be a football coach until I went on this course, It was then I changed my mind and I am now more interested in scouting and analysis.
Throughout both Level 1 and Level 2 courses I learnt a wide range of football knowledge that I never had before, such as, looking at a player from a different perspective and assessing a players attributes clearer, noticing different abilities in players that are more suited to different shapes and formations thus making your analysis and opinion more accurate. Match reporting of how a team attacks and defends. The good thing about the course is that it isn’t just for scouting, it’s also beneficial for football managers and coaches at any level. Because of IPSO I now scout for Dagenham and Redbridge 1st team.
I would like to thank the IPSO team for their time and effort in helping me become a professional scout.’’
Thanks IPSO. Lee Hackett
