All students.

A student is considered to occupy an allocated place when the trainee was recruited before any recruitment control was applied by the DfE. Trainees specifically on the School Direct (salaried) route employed in a state maintained school (including an academy or free school) are also considered to occupy an allocated place. See recruitment controls documentation on GOV.UK.

In most cases a funded trainee MUST take up an allocated place. The only exception is where a provider wishes to use an allocated place for an unfunded School Direct Salaried trainee.

Further guidance on the coding requirements for allocated places may be found in the 'Further guidance about returning DfE programmes (excluding EYITT)' document.
