Each year, students will be given the opportunity to shadow a senior manager for a period of up to one week in either the Lent half term, Easter or summer vacation of the Lower Sixth Form. This opportunity gives students a chance to identify the skills required to become successful managers of the future and gives them an insight into the world of business. A spokesperson from the Institute of Directors will give a presentation about the benefits of this scheme at the beginning of the Lent term. All participants are expected to make a short oral presentation about their experience to a panel of judges. They must also attend the awards night, when the overall winners will give their presentations in front of managers, family and participating students. This is also the opportunity to thank their managers for the opportunity to shadow them.
13 students from The Ladies' College were placed in various industries and businesses across the Island during the Easter and Summer holidays.
Lena, Louise, Lydia and Maisy were selected for the final, from the 45 other students who took part from across the island.
All of the girls gave superb and engaging presentations to the panel of judges and audience. Louise and Maisy were given special commendations with Lydia coming in a very close second place and awarded a distinction. Lena took the overall top prize, winning this year's 2021 Leadership Shadowing award.
