We had hoped that this post today would be able to provide more certainty, but still we wait for answers.
Yesterday's briefing from the Chancellor outlined the provisions for the self-employed.
This has meant that those on a contract for services face a further wait to see what support will be in place.
Those that represent our sector continue to make the point that supply teachers could prove crucial in the coming weeks and months in the effort to keep schools open for the children of key workers.
This issue is still very much alive, and the government continues to be pressed for clarity.
As mentioned on Wednesday, the mechanisms are still not in place, and with it the full criteria for eligibility.
Today we will be hearing again from representatives of our industry, whose legal team will be able to filter the information to us as soon as they have definitive answers.
We don't want to use these posts to speculate on what may or may not happen.
The reality is that we don't know.
The one certainty though is that whatever the outcome is, we are working to get that information to you as quickly, and concisely as possible.
We will be in touch again tomorrow, and in the meantime please take care.
