Propeller is still open – just working differently.

We are still offering 1-1 sessions via phone, Skype or Teams. If you already have a Propeller mentor, contact them through the usual means. Alternatively, for those of you who are new,  arrange your first appointment by calling 01772 895950.
Workshops are also still going ahead, so register as usual. Once you’ve registered, you’ll receive information about using Teams, and then you will receive a link to the online classroom on the day.

Who Is Propeller?

Propeller helps you develop the skills and knowledge needed to be more enterprising, including help to start your own business through interactive workshops, events and activities.

We are dedicated to preparing UCLan students, graduates and staff for an ever-changing work environment, including self-employment and freelancing. The skills we teach are also beneficial in larger companies where an understanding of how business works can give you an advantage over competition. We offer a complete enterprise support programme providing skills, training, mentoring, workspace and networking to the students, alumni and staff of the University of Central Lancashire.

Given the increasing numbers of people working from home, now’s the perfect time to engage with us. We’ve dropped our eligibility criteria so that we can work with local SME’s too. 

343 students, staff and graduates supported in 2018-19

119 Student or graduate businesses supported last year

Over 2,000 hours of 1-1 mentor support delivered in 2018-19
