What we did

NMC Bright developed together with HAN University of Applied Science courses for talent identification in sports.


NMC Bright and HAN University of Applied Sciences join forces to introduce courses for talent identification in sports. The first online course starts in February 2021.

These courses are combining science with daily practice. The objective of the project is to improve processes and the overall quality of talent identification in sports. The cooperation between HAN University of Applied Sciences and NMC Bright adds value because we can combine scientific knowledge with experience in consulting sport organizations.  We make the transfer from science to the policy of sports organizations and -clubs.

The courses are introduced at three levels: Basic, Advanced and Expert. All courses are accessible for all sports and will start in Dutch only. Later on, the courses will be available in English too.


The Basic course is suitable for everyone who wants to develop their basic knowledge in talent identification. The participants will learn to identify talent better within their own sport environment. The Basic course has a study load of 20 hours and will take place online.


The Advance course is suitable for professionals with basic knowledge about talent identification in sports. Through cases and assignments the participants will apply scientific insights in their own environment. The course exists of 4 live-meetings of 5 hours. The participants will develop a structural improvement in processes of talent identification for kids in the age of 6-15 years.


With the Expert course, executives professionals will develop their vision on talent identification further. An extra point of focus is how to change the sports organization within this new developed vision on talent identification with an analysis of the governance of their organization. National and international experts will help the participants with guest lectures.

It's most crucial that everyone who is working with talent develops theirself with this knowledge. The eye of the master is something that is very important. But combining this with scientific insights, both worlds will come together.
