New for 2021-22 – DRB Leadership Briefings

Category: news

The Gateway Alliance are delighted to be working with DRB to bring our network an exclusive offer:

Discounted access to the highly-respected DRB Leadership Briefings for academic year 2021-22. 

For colleagues who are not aware of the DRB Leadership Briefings, they are an essential termly update for senior leaders featuring the latest from the DfE, the ESFA, Ofqual, the Standards and Testing Agency and Ofsted.

DRB have been offering these termly briefings for several years now, primarily to senior leaders in schools across Birmingham and Sheffield, but more recently heads in Warwickshire and Coventry have become aware of their value and begun to buy in. This year the briefings have moved online and are now offered remotely via Zoom; the termly programme also includes additional support in the form of weekly email updates and ongoing telephone and email support from the briefing’s facilitator and experienced former headteacher – Andrew Pilmore.

Gateway Alliance are delighted to be offering discounted access to these briefings for academic year 2021-22 as part of our Senior Leaders’ Network Subscription.

The Gateway CPD and network subscriptions for 2021-22 will be released shortly for you to take advantage of this exclusive subscription offer for 2021-22.


As an introduction for colleagues that are not familiar with the DRB briefings, we are offering one FREE place on this term’s live leadership briefing, which will take place via Zoom, on:

DATE: Friday 25th June 2021

TIME: 08:30-10:30

COST: 1 place FREE*

So this means that schools who choose to subscribe to Gateway’s Senior Leaders’ Network for 2021-22, will get FOUR DRB Leadership Briefings for just an extra £150!! Saving a massive £330 off the recommended retail price of £120/briefing.

*This offer is for 1 FREE place on the summer term briefing for schools in Warwickshire or schools outside of Warwickshire that are keen to join our network next academic year but have not previously accessed the DRB Leadership Briefings. Charges will apply for other schools and additional places.
