PAUL TALKED ABOUT HIS TIME ON THE IPSO COURSES
I participated on the course a few years ago before the pandemic. It was my best investment by far. I would like to thank IPSO personally for the skills and education they have given me. Scouting is not easy and there is a lot to learn and many levels to progress through to be a good scout. Attention to detail is the key and this is drummed into you from word go, it is the motto of IPSO. I have studded every word form their education and I can’t thank them enough. My advice is join the IPSO family learn the trade and progress your football education. I will continue my football intelligence with IPSO as you are always learning.
