Currently, the situation is that expressions of interest have been sought, and a lengthy list was produced of those who were interested within that. The advice and, indeed, the nature of the pilot scheme that was progressed by the Executive was that this was open to 120 in this year; that was felt to be the maximum number that could be progressed. We had a lot more than that, and those teachers who were successful in reaching that top 120 have now been written to. There is also a legal challenge, from a judicial review point of view, from somebody who is challenging that. The outcome of that will be critical to the progress of that, but if that judicial review is not successful, progress will happen to ensure — at least with regard to the pilot scheme — that those will be progressed and reach a point of conclusion in-year.
