The Transition to Work Program (TTW) is a 12-month vocational program designed for students with disabilities who can function independently on a college campus but may not have the ability to succeed in a traditional college classroom. Focused instruction gives TTW students the opportunity to develop specific job skills. Students receive on-the-job training at the Foothill campus and enroll in communication, social skills, physical education, and other vocationally focused classes. \ Being able to participate and do classroom assignments as well as having appropriate behavior for a college campus is key to being admitted into the TTW program. TTW is a vocational program for people with disabilities who can function independently on a college campus, but may not be able to handle the academics at this time of mainstream college classes.
