Dr Emma Hill

Liverpool Business School

Faculty of Business and Law

I oversee all of the Liverpool Business School's apprenticeship provision. It is my role to ensure that our apprenticeship courses provide a high quality learning experience that meets the skills needs of employers in the Liverpool City region.

My academic background is in geography, with a focus on analysing and reconstructing long term environmental change. After completing my PhD I worked with a range of organisations to improve environmental performance in areas such as climate change, mitigation and adaptation, environmental management system implementation, waste management and energy efficiency.

In 2013 I came back into Higher Education to teach energy and environmental management. My teaching included sustainability, renewable energy, climate change & carbon reporting, climate change science, environmental management systems & auditing, research skills, energy policy.
