This study aims to assess the level of emotional intelligence of student teachers. The authors used Mayer and Salovey’s emotional intelligence model and the MSCEIT test of emotional intelligence. This study shows that the pre-service teachers studied have levels of emotional intelligence below the norm for the wider population. The gender differences are greater in this sample than would be expected in the wider population. These data suggest that, on average, student teachers may need help in all four of the competence areas that have been described. The data also suggests that male students, on average, are weaker than female students at using emotions to facilitate thinking and at regulation of emotion.
