Rare has been engaging with school students since 2012. This work includes:
- our groundbreaking Target Oxbridge programme
- partnering with Deutsche Bank on the I Have A Dream work experience programme
- working with our legal clients to fulfil their PRIME commitments
- sourcing and coaching candidates for the Civil Service Fast Track Apprenticeship Scheme.
We have relationships with over 50 schools with high proportions of students from BME and lower socioeconomic status backgrounds, as well as high proportions of students achieving 5 A* - C at GCSE.
This careful selection of partner schools, in combination with the Rare Contextual Recruitment System, enables us to select high performing school students from under-represented and disadvantaged groups for work experience opportunities with our clients. We are also able to create bespoke development programmes for clients who want to work with groups of students over an extended time period.
