Features of the Professional Training Teachers’ Decision- Making in the Conditions of a Competence-Oriented Education

Keywords: professional training, professional education, competence-oriented education, standardization, automated information system.


The article deals with the directions of professional education development, which are related to the necessity of focusing on the labor market needs, namely the competent direction of future specialists’ training, the implementation of the conceptual provisions for the standardization of professional education. The relevance of the tendency of professional education’s orientation onto the modern labor market is defined in the article.

The purpose of the article is to investigate the peculiarities of the professional activity of teachers of modern vocational education and their influence on decision-making processes. The authors of the article have made an attempt to substantiate the analysis of the peculiarities of introducing a competence-oriented approach into education as one of the effective ways of its reformation and improvement.

It is identified the cause-effect character of the necessity of designing a common methodology for the formation of the specialist’s competence and the urgent solution of the problem of professional education standardization. The authors have also defined the main contradiction of this process, which is seen in the lack of involving business entities, those are the customers of the future specialists’ training, in the process of creating qualification standards.

The authors have noted that nowadays the activity of teachers on standardization of professional education on a competence basis becomes the main direction of the implementation of modernization reforms in education. Therefore, in order to achieve objectivity in the professional training teachers’ decision-making, the authors of the article have proposed to apply ideas and methods of information- extreme intellectual technology. This method of information-extreme intellectual technology (IEI-technology) for data analysis is based on maximizing the information capacity of the system in the machine teaching process, grounded onto the algorithm of the information- analytical system on the adaptation of the graduation department’s study content to the labor market requirements.

The authors have made a conclusion that, minding the further development of a model of competency education associated with the transition from the general theoretical understanding of the peculiarities of constructing subject-based educational programs, situational-simulation technologies and control-measuring methods that are adequate to practical implementation with the use of modern information systems, the special attention should be paid to the creation of educational standards, according to which educational programs and educational disciplines’ content will be formed, aimed at a competency rather than on material indicators.
