~~“The Community Work Transition Program (CWTP) is a fee-for-service program addressing the VR Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requirements of providing targeted pre-employment transition services to students and promoting successful movement into competitive integrated employment. The CWTP helps students with disabilities gain skills and obtain resources to be career ready through services provided by an Employment Specialist. The CWTP is designed to provide students with a variety of opportunities and experiences in preparation for competitive integrated employment and/or postsecondary education and/or training. The program includes both Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS) and Individualized Employment Transition Services (ETS), with a primary focus on ETS.  It is a cooperative effort between participating local education agencies, the Kentucky Department of Education, Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, and the Human Development Institute at the University of Kentucky.”
