About Pre-ETS

About Pre-ETS

The CHIPS Future-Ready Job Skills Bootcamp is a summer learning enrichment program that is also an extension of our CHIPS Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS). 

 

CHIPS Pre-ETS is offered during the academic school year to students in Hamilton County, Bradley County and other surrounding county schools.  Our services are also offered at the Tennessee Rehabilitation Center (TRC) in Smryna, Tennessee.

Pre-ETS is designed to serve students ages 14-22 with disabilities FREE of charge, provided a  student has an Individual Education Plan (IEP) or documented disability with a permission form.  This service is made possible through a grant by the Department of Tennessee Human Services Vocational Rehabilitation, with whom we partner.

The five areas of training in Pre-ETS are:

  1. Job Exploration

  2. Self-Advocacy

  3. Workplace Readiness

  4. Work-based Learning

  5. Post-Secondary College and Career Counseling

After signing up with your email address and other details, we will send you a parent/guardian permission form to complete and return to us, along with the first page of your child's IEP. 

We will then forward your information to our local Chattanooga Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) office representative. Once we hear back from them, we will let you know next steps regarding registering your child.

 

Please know, we will need to have at least four (4) students registered in order to offer the camp.

You may send your information as a scanned email attachment or via regular postal mail to CHIPS Learning Services. Should you wish to fax or postal mail us, please let us know in advance by calling 423.421.5646.

 

If you have any questions or need additional information, please let us know. Also, please feel free to pass on this information to others and invite friends to join you!

Thank you, again, for your interest in CHIPS Learning Services! We look forward to serving you!
