The Institute for Apprenticeships (IfA) would like to thank Dame Asha Khemka for all of her work as a member of our board.

She has played an important role in the development of the IfA since our launch in April 2017, during which time she has both sat on the Institute board and chaired the Quality Assurance Committee.

Antony Jenkins, chair of the IfA board, commented upon her decision to step down. He said:

“Dame Asha has been a highly valued member of our board. I would also like to thank her for the time and effort she has dedicated to chairing the Quality Assurance Committee.
“We wish her all the best for the future.”

Dame Asha also expressed her best wishes towards the Institute. She said:

“It has been an honour and privilege to serve on the IfA Board.
“However, considering I am no longer a serving principal, I have decided to step down from the board.  I convey my best wishes to the Institute.”

Dame Asha, who was principal and chief executive of West Nottinghamshire College from 2006, stepped down from that role at the end of September.
