Who Asks Us?
'Who Asks Us?' is a series of ongoing projects run across Suffolk, focusing on giving young people a voice and an inside look at further education and career paths.
Since 2012, the project has been run in various schools, academies, colleges and pupil referral units, giving hundreds of students a voice and a greater understanding of their futures. Through visits to countless local businesses, colleges and more, young people have been able to engage directly with those involved in a range of different career paths, learn from their experiences, and ask the question 'Who Asks Us?'
You can find out more on the project from its website whoasksus.org.
A big part of the project is giving the young people something tangible to take away with them once a project is concluded - a series of films made throughout the project to refer back to. Above are some examples made on different projects, all made possible by our young people and their enthusiasm.
The Offshoot Foundation has a proven track record of successfully working with Schools, businesses, young people and adults over a 3 year period on its 'Who Asks Us?' project - gaining a Suffolk County Council Raising the Bar Award for Innovation in Education and Skills in the process.
