Transition Partnership Program (TPP)
The Transition Partnership Program (TPP) is a statewide vocational education and work placement program. TPP provides secondary and post-secondary students with disabilities the tools and support necessary to effectively transition from school to competitive employment. TPP contacts are located throughout the state of California in local high schools and community colleges; however, not all school districts or community colleges have a TPP Program.
The TPP provides enhanced vocational rehabilitation services for at least one year prior to the student leaving high school. Services include training and school classes or programs to enable students to obtain employment. This may include community based instruction, vocational and work-site training, job placement, work incentive wages, and follow-up services.
Who is eligible?
Persons who are enrolled in a secondary school and who meet Department of Rehabilitation requirements may be eligible. Interested students must complete paperwork for the California Department of Rehabilitation and qualify for their services before registering for a TPP. See the Department of Rehabilitation section in this handbook for more specific information on eligibility requirements.
Interested applicants must be referred by school staff. For self-referral contact the WorkAbilty Program at your high school to inquire if they have a TPP.
The following documents are needed for interested applicants to complete the enrollment process:
- Social Security Card
- Identification Card/Drivers license or Birth Certificate
- Psycho Educational Assessments and IEP
