Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA)
Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS) for students with disabilities in need of services who are eligible or potentially eligible for Vocational Rehabilitation services.
Pre-ETS is required to provide the following activities to students in participating schools:
1. Job exploration counseling
2. Work-based learning experiences
3. Counseling on opportunities for enrollment in postsecondary education
4. Workplace readiness
5. Instruction in self-advocacy
As a result the North Central Collaborative was formed by a group of providers to administer Pre-ETS services to students ages 14 to 22 in Delaware, Grant, Henry, Howard, Madison, Miami, Tipton and Wabash counties.
Pre-ETS is provided at no cost to schools or students. The North Central Collaborative will be working with each school to choose the most effective way to provide Pre-ETS services to eligible students.

Funding for Pre-ETS is made available by a contract with Indiana Vocational Rehabilitation Services.
