Regular) and Inservice training programme (B.Ed. Distance mode). Research has been carried out on 182 trainee teachers (divided into two groups i.e. Pre-service training programme (B.Ed. Regular) and In-service training programme (B.Ed. Distance mode), using Emotional Intelligence Scale (EIS) by Anukool Hyde, Sanjyot Pathe and Upinder Dhar (2002). Mean, Standard deviation and "t"-test are used to analyze the data. The research has indicated that emotional intelligence of trainee teachers differs significantly in relation to their mode of training.
