'My placement don't want me there'


This situation can happen at any point in your student career, not just first placement of first year. I suguest that you speak to your mentor first, explain how you feel and why. I have just had to do the same thing with my mentor as she was not very good at giving me feedback on how well/or bad I was doing and I often felt incompetent. We had a good chat and the air was cleared and found that she is a stickler for correct paperwork and promised to make sure she praised as well as corrected work I have done. I am on my second to last placement of third year so that just proves my point. But never just go off complaining to others until you have given your mentor a chance to explain or change her/his behaviour. She may just be shocked about how you feel, not everyone can pick up the signals. Good luck with the rest of your training.
