Created by both a senior Head of Technical Scouting department for Newcastle United AND a Cambridge lecturer who is considered a pioneer in data science, having worked for Chelsea, Real Madrid and PSG.
The PFSA are pleased to announce the arrival of the hotly anticipated PFSA Level 2 Technical Scouting in Football course. Developed by leading specialists within the game, the new online course is 100% interactive and can be taken in your own time at your own pace.
The new Level 2 Technical Scouting course will be applied learning, which means you will be taught industry best-practices in setting up a professional workflow.
Major advancements in information technology and numerical data science have recently transformed football player evaluation and the scouting process with clubs now investing thousands within this process. These quantitatively-based information systems complement and build upon existing forms of scouting to help provide a complete and more thorough player assessment.
A Brief Comparison
Although technical scouting is scientifically underpinned by the fields of computing, mathematics and statistics; you do not need advanced knowledge of those disciplines in order to effectively utilise the technical scouting tools that will be discussed on the course.
Use of information technology and data science are very rapidly-expanding aspects of many modern football clubs, with new ways of working and new employment opportunities emerging daily. The industry needs cutting-edge professionals with football-specific technical knowledge!
