What are Pre-Employment Transition Services?

Pre-employment transition services (Pre-ETS) are a set of services designed to help students with disabilities prepare for and transition to post-secondary education and employment. These services are provided to students with disabilities who are 14 years of age or older and are still in high school. The goal of Pre-ETS is to help students with disabilities gain the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in post-secondary education or employment after they leave high school.

Pre-ETS can include a range of services such as:

• Job exploration counseling, which helps students identify their interests, skills, and abilities, and match them to potential careers.

• Work-based learning experiences, such as job shadowing, internships, or apprenticeships, which provide students with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a field of their interest.

• Counseling on opportunities for enrollment in post-secondary education.

• Workplace readiness training to teach students skills such as interviewing, resume writing, and communication skills.

• Assistive technology and accommodations to help students with disabilities succeed in their chosen field.

• Transition services such as mentoring, job coaching, or follow-up services to help students succeed in their chosen field after they leave high school.

Pre-ETS can be provided by a range of organizations such as public schools, vocational rehabilitation agencies, and other state and local agencies. The services and their availability may vary depending on the location, the organization providing the service, and the student's needs.

Pre-ETS aims to provide students with disabilities the opportunity to gain the skills and experiences they need to be successful in post-secondary education or employment and help them to become more independent in their chosen field.
