Is it normal to feel scared for the first time at placement when you are 17 years for health and social care? What kind of things will you do in your placement in a care home for health and social care? Thanks

Yes, nerves at new things are normal.

Your 17, they wont put you in any position to make serious decisions as that would be reckless, you will most likely do admin tasks and act as a helper/shadow other workers until you get things figured out.

Hi!

I am a Level 3 Extended Diploma in health and social care student and I am currently undergoing my second year. My first placement was in a care setting and I was a helping hand with the activities team. Its really fun, hands on and there you have no major responsibilities as you are not allowed to do personal care. Hope this helps

On my first day I wore interview attire so blsck trouser blouse blazer as I was shown around the placement and had to fill out forms, also flat shoes. In an environment like that I defo think trousers would be more appropriate, you could ask them on the day if you are getting a uniform and if not ask what clothes they’d prefer you to wear if you’re unsure!
