Focus on importance of soft skills for students

PALANI: Communication skill, soft skills, personality development and change in attitude were basic requirements for graduates to become employable. Ability to communicate effectively was important to face stiff competition in every sphere of life, said P. R. Sampath, Commissioner, Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments.

Delivering the 27 {+t} {+h} Graduation Day address at Arulmigu Palani Andavar College of Arts and Culture here on Saturday, he said that the 'right speaking skill' had been neglected for a long time in our school and college curricula. Fading habit of reading books also contributed to the inability of students to communicate in a better way.

Spoken English must be taught as a separate subject in schools and colleges using modern methods of teaching, training and testing. Practical exercises on extempore speech, prepared speeches, group discussion and debates were some of the techniques to be followed to enhance communication skills. Video recording of speech, speaking before mike, voice training, gesture exercise, confidence building measures and eye contact would certainly enhance speaking skills, he said.

Stating that recession was temporary, the Commissioner said that six lakh jobs would be created in the Information Technology sector in the next three years.

A continuous process

Learning must become a continuous process. Acquiring a job should not become an end of learning. Graduates should inculcate a habit of reading, observing nature and refining abilities to become successful. Education should create magnanimity, fair-mindedness and sacrifice to work for a goal, Mr. Sampath said.

Education, in the recent past, had become a tool for a learner to get a job and for countries to develop economy. It should also make a man civilised. Higher education must develop basic courtesy and culture among people. Graduates should develop friendship and cooperation while learning to co-exist in a socio-economic environment. Above all, education should develop one's personality.

The Department of Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments had been managing five arts colleges, one polytechnic college and 36 schools, he added.


When it matters about personality, it is a constant method of adaptation. Once you are charged up to do something to change yourself, you can register yourself in a good soft skills workshop. The benefits here are many. You will be introduced to various activities and the entire episode is split into productive chapters that will help you change and adapt. The inclusions of skills in your life are very important. Supposing you are extremely good at culinary skills and you specialize in Mughlai food. There is certainly no harm in learning something new and you can include something in Thai. This is a creative purpose which we all as human beings desire to have in life.
Soft skills are very important to get select in competition exams especially in defense papers where interview is all depends on the soft skills and mannerism.
NDA previous years papers are used by students to learn about the English questions which were asked in the previous exams.
