Human Resource Development
RMKM realises that in order to make their efforts at holistic community building a sustainable and widespread activity and achieve the desired results, there is urgent requirement of trained human resources. The organisation has therefore invested in several capacity building initiatives under the roof of "Sagar College"
(I) Bachelors Degree in Special Education (Mental Retardation) and Diploma in Special Education (Mental Retardation) - DSE (MR)
By keeping in the view the scacity of Special Educators/Professionals working in the field of disability, RMKM started the DSE (MR) course in 2007, the only organisation in Ajmer district to do so. The course is affiliated with the RCI and Ministry of Social Justice and Welfare (Govt of India). There are 30 seats offered by RMKM for this programme. While RMKM has the required expertise by way of a trained and experienced faculty, its school for special children provides the necessary practical experience for students of the course. The scope of the course is immense since according to the state government, there should be one teacher for every eight MR students and one special instructor for every block in a district under the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan guidelines.
With the successful implementation of DSE (MR) course, RMKM started the Degree course in Special Education (Mental Retardation) B.Ed S.E.-M.R in the year 2015. The course has been affiliated with RCI and Recognized by Maharshi Dayanand Saraswati University (MDSU), Ajmer. The course offers 30 seats for the candiadates who aspires to work in the field of special education. (Placement student list)
