Attitude plays an important role in determining the mental inclination of the individuals concerned.

Considering this perspective the researchers made up their mind to explore the attitude of the secondary female teacher-trainees pursuing their B. Ed. course in the teacher training institutions under The University of Burdwan. The attitude of the female teacher-trainees belonging to Govt. sponsored and private B. Ed. colleges were the target population of the present study. Four of such colleges were selected for attitude survey. An opinionnaire comprising 36 statements were administered to the trainees and their responses were collected. Administering Likert-type scale their opinions were quantified. At last the scores were calculated and t-test was done to know the attitudinal differences between two different types of female teacher-trainees, namely, deputed-fresher, govt.-private etc.
