Who Is Propeller?

Propeller helps you develop the skills and knowledge needed to be more enterprising.

Our workshops and online freelancing platform ‘Flightpath’ are open to all current students, staff and alumni of UCLan to develop transferable skills and even start your own business. We also offer current students, staff and recent graduates (up to 3 years) further support through 1-1 guidance and funding through the Propeller Enterprise Award.

At the moment we are offering 1-1 mentor sessions and workshops via Microsoft Teams. 

The Propeller Hub (ME412) and office (ME401) will not be in use. If you have an enquiry, please email teampropeller@uclan.ac.uk instead. You can register for workshops as usual and will then receive a link to the online classroom on the day.

Don’t forget, you can also use Flightpath to develop your freelance skills at any time!
