Who Is Propeller?

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

If you’re a UCLan student, staff member or alumni, we can help you to develop transferable skills and even start your own business. We offer a complete enterprise support programme providing skills, training, mentoring, workspace, networking and online courses.

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

Although the Propeller Hub will be re-opening this September, the office in 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!
