Parent Governor Representatives – HCC Overview & Scrutiny Committee

Following the recent PGR election process we are pleased to report 2 newly elected PGRs as of 1st May 2017:


Mr Jan Cameron (South): I’m an experienced project manager working at a leading university, delivering wide-ranging projects across departments. I am practiced in quality assurance and ensuring stakeholder engagement is in place and met. I am used to auditing projects independently, providing clear recommendations to directors and senior leaders. As a parent governor and deputy chair I lead on several school improvement initiatives that require me to be consultative with staff, parents and pupils. I am used to reviewing policies and ensuring they are fit for purpose and deliver value for money and wish to use my expertise to assist the committee


Mr Andrew Charlwood (West): I would like to be elected as the Parent Governor Representative for the West area to serve on Hertfordshire County Councils Overview & Scrutiny Committee.  I am vice-chairman/parent governor at a school in Hemel Hempstead.  I am the Head of Governance at a neighbouring local authority and so fully understand the roles and responsibilities of a parent governor representative and how local authority governance, decision-making and overview & scrutiny works.  I am confident that I would be able to represent the views of parents and pupils on the committee in relation to education matters.


Elections for the East and North of the county will be run again no later than October 2017.
