In the sphere of teacher education research the attitude constitutes a significant and comprehensive dimension that prompts the researchers to explore their inquisitive outlook on multiple factors pertaining to teacher education program. Considering this perspective the researchers made up their mind to explore the attitude of the secondary female teacher-trainees pursuing their 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.
