Social Work Placement Concerns meeting PAP. Please read, help!! Watch

Report Thread starter 2 years ago
I'm on a undergrad social work course second year first placement.

I left my placement 17 days early due to mental health issues (depression and anxiety caused by family issues).

My GP actually referred me to my own placement and other mental health services in my area where I know service users and professionals working there because of my placement.

The course leader has decided that because of the conflict of interest there is no option for me to return to this placement and he wants me to start another one.

But before this I have to attend this concerns meeting next week but obviously there are two options from this 1. they decide I can go on another placement 2. I cannot go on another placement and so my course will be terminated,

My practice educator is going to be there, course leader, head of social work, and 2 independent social workers. Who makes the final decision?

I’ve been given no information of what will happen or entail or what I need to prepare for this so I was wondering if anyone has been to anything similar.

I'm on medication now and have CBT so I am well now and have documented this to my course leader. He is happy for me to go on another placement and has been really supportive but it just depends on the outcome of this meeting!

Thanks in advance for any help
