Governors Membership – Amrik Singh
- Director of QED (Leicester) Ltd
I joined the Corporation as a Parent Governor in 2010 and have since been elected Vice-Chair. As a parent I fully understand the worries and concerns students and parents have when considering the college and during this important time in their life. I believe WQEIC is an outstanding college. That’s’ why I chose it with my son and will work very hard to maintain this standard so that my daughter will also consider coming here, although that is many years away.
I bring a range of experiences to the Corporation having worked in both the private and public sector, engaging closely with community and voluntary groups. I am a Civil Servant and have worked for several departments including the Department for Education and Skills and the Department for Work and Pensions. I am passionate about lifelong learning, improving skills and offering the best opportunity to aspire.
My expertise lies in policy development, equality and diversity and compliance. I currently manage a team that is responsible for many millions of euros and ensure expenditure is fully compliant with European legislation and national policy. Previous to this I worked on national Skills policy and have been involved in many high profile projects.
I am an avid Leicester City Football fan.
