Author(s): Geetha K and Dr. Amutha Sree N

Abstract: The study aims to find out the differential effect of socio-demographic factors like gender, age, educational qualification, and type of management of the institution on emotional competence of training college teachers of Kerala. The descriptive study utilized data collected from a stratified random sample of 238 teacher educators from various teacher education colleges affiliated to four universities in Kerala. Four null hypotheses were tested for the study. The data were collected by administering the Emotional Competency Scale for Teacher Educators (Geetha & Amutha Sree, 2023) having acceptable validity and reliability. Data analysis was accomplished with the help of SPSS. The analysis brought out that gender and age of the training college teachers exert significant differential effect on their metacognition. Whereas, neither holding a research degree nor the type of management of the college have significant differential influence on the emotional competence of training college teachers. The female teachers were found to outshine the male teachers in their emotional competence. Likewise, teachers in the 31-45 years age group were found to excel their colleagues in the <30 years age group and >46 years age group in their emotional competence.
