Description

The Transition-to-Work Endorsement Preparation program is designed for special educators who wish to prepare 4th through 12th grade students with moderate-to-intensive disabilities for adult life. In addition to employment, the Transition-to-Work program also addresses issues related to residential, recreational, continuing education and other outcomes experienced by adults with and without disabilities. The Kent State Transition-to-Work endorsement leads to a single qualification applicable to all former transition roles (e.g., work study, VOSE, Option IV). For more information regarding the standards governing the endorsement, please visit Ohio's Department of Education. Coursework from a master's degree in Special Education may apply towards endorsement requirements; however, student must apply to and be accepted into both the endorsement program and the master's programs.
