Date & Details

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.

The DRB Leadership Briefings are an essential termly update for senior leaders featuring the latest from the Department for Education, 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 are delighted to be offering discounted access to these briefings, to schools in our network, for academic year 2021-22. Our subscription information, including full details of this offer, will be released shortly, in the meantime for more information please contact us.
