Transition to Work Endorsement
The Transition-to-Work (TTW) endorsement program is designed for teachers licensed as intervention specialists (special education) or vocational educators. The TTW endorsement leads to a qualification applicable to all former transition roles such as Work Study Coordinator, Vocational Special Education Coordinator (VOSE), Career Assessment Specialist, and Job Training Coordinators.
The TTW endorsement is based on the competencies identified by the Ohio Board of Regents/Department of Education. This program prepares graduate students to support youth with disabilities in their transition planning and services. Please review the course list here. Many students choose to pair a certificate with a degree program. Applicants may obtain a master’s degree in special education in conjunction with the transition to work endorsement requirements.
The on-line nature of the endorsement provides accessibility to practicing professional special educators who are unable to take traditional, on-campus graduate courses. The University of Toledo is regionally accredited by the North Central Association (NCA) and is authorized to offer degrees online.
