Summary Failing a fieldwork placement can be a challenging and emotional experience. This study aimed to explore the perspectives of placement supervisors and university fieldwork educators (UFEs) of the factors that contribute to occupational therapy students failing placement. Twenty placement supervisors and four UFEs participated, and completed single instance surveys and interviews. Failure of a placement was noted to be a stressful experience for all stakeholders. Reasons identified for student failure included poor communication and reflection skills; non-disclosure of health issues and an inability to accept feedback. Placement supervisors highlighted that although failing a student was difficult, there was a need to uphold the values and standards of the profession. Strategies to facilitate placement success were identified.
