Launched in loving memory of sales director Dave Rees, who sadly passed away last year, this scholarship aims to make a positive change across Tactical Solutions and the local communities.
The Dave Rees Scholarship Award is available to all Tactical Solutions employees on an annual basis. This year with a deadline of Febuary 28th.
The annual award pays for an employee to complete training that will result in a positive impact in their local community. Whether it’s coaching a local football team, learning sign language or polishing up IT skills to take on more tasks within the company, It doesn’t have to be business-related, either. Cookery classes, voluntary work will also be considered.
The Dave Rees scholarship is presented in the form of a monetary award. The winner can put this towards a course or similar skill-based activity as well as a full working day to complete any courses or qualifications.
This years winners are Chris Morton, David Smith and Richard Aubrey.
David Smith is a local Scout group leader. Who put the prize towards completing an Archery GB Instructors Award. Richard Aubrey, a rugby coach to a local under 7s team, will be looking for ‘new ways to teach and develop’ the current field team. Chris Morton is planning on entering for his level 3 rugby coaching badge. He coaches a local women’s team and wants to start a youth section.
Winner, Richard Aubrey, comments: “I’m thrilled to have been one of the first chosen for the Dave Rees Scholarship. Having the ability to work with children in the local community, to give something back and be part of the future development of Welsh Rugby will be a very rewarding challenge. The skills I will gain working in this environment will also be a valuable asset to our business. I’ll be looking at new ideas in the world of coaching & development that can be transferred to the team.”
