The Level 2 is all about match reporting/match analysis. It is the most detailed and deepest course within the IPSO courses. It’s designed to teach scouts analysts or anyone interested to analyse the opposition and create a detailed team report. We will teach you how to analyse 11 players at the same time (at speed), we will teach you how to analyse a team on how they attack and defend in units separately and collectively as a team. We will teach you on how to look at set-plays in a decisive way to implement them into a match report. We will teach you how and where to look when analysing the strengths and weaknesses of a team. In total, how to asses a team with a professional infrastructure and pathway to get the report made and created in a professional presentation for the head chief scout or head of analysis at a professional club. This skill can’t be learned in 2 hours or overnight it is a big skill, join us and learn to do the job professionally at the highest level. We will teach you to create reports that will make a difference.

You will have an exam at the end of the course where you create a report on a team and you have a certain criteria to meet to pass the course and gain your qualification. If you fail to pass the course it is no problem you take it again until you meet the criteria to pass (as many times as you want for free). You have to earn this certificate you do not get it handed to you for participation.
