Little Miracles is a charity that supports families that have children with additional needs, disabilities and life limiting conditions, providing a place for these children to play, laugh and create friendships. Little Miracles Family Support workers provide a lifeline and support to the whole family of children with additional needs, including parents, carers and siblings. The centre was rebuilt as part of the Children in Need DIY SOS BBC programme, and has fantastic facilities for disabled children.
Apprentice Jack Cook from Little Miracles joined Little Miracles as an apprentice in 2013, and has completed Level 2 and Level 3 Business Administration apprenticeships through City College Peterborough. Jack is now the Business Development Officer at Little Miracles, and is studying for his Level 4 qualification with them.
Speaking from his time at Little Miracles, Jack comments: “My role here is extremely varied and I have been involved in planning events for the organisation, prospecting and calling up Trusts and planning projects. Over my time here, I have grown with the charity and as it has grown, so has my role within the organisation. I feel that I am at the centre of it all and I am involved at managerial level and in the decision-making process on projects.
“City College Peterborough have been very helpful and fast to act throughout the Apprenticeship process and have been very supportive of me during my time studying towards a Level 2 qualification to now as a Level 4 apprentice.”
