Abstract:

'Public speaking is speaking to a group of people in a structured, deliberate manner intended to inform, influence, or entertain the listeners' (Wikipedia). Therefore, a good speech should be substantial and engaging. There are three main points which the most orators should concern for making a good public speaking including preparation, body languages, and speaking skills. A study has been undertaken during the month of May 2018 to assess the knowledge level and skill level regarding public speaking for employment among the students of GBPUA&T, Pantnagar, and Uttarakhand. For this the knowledge test and skill test has been designed and administered to a sample of 20 respondents which were drawn through the stratified equal proportionate sampling technique from five colleges of university i.e. COA,COT, COF, Veterinary College and COH in which strata of UG and PG were made. The result of knowledge test revealed that 20 per cent respondents fall in the high scorer category, 60 per cent fall in the medium scorer category and 20 per cent fall in the low scorer category. The result of skill test depicted that 25 per cent respondents fall in high scorer category, 60 per cent fall in medium scorer category and 15 per cent fall in low scorer category. Students identified their training needs on using verbal skills effectively, concluding the speech, grabbing the attention of audience, boosting confidence and reducing anxieties as major areas of to be covered under training programme. The study recommends organizing capacity building trainings for enhancement of knowledge and skills of public speaking among students which will make them succeed in all aspects of their job life.
