Introduction. The growing and diverse requirements for the VET teacher’s qualification
have determined the subject of this article—possible solutions to the problem of the
VET teacher’s necessary skills list.
The aim of this article is to analyze different approaches to the formation of the VET
teacher’s necessary skills list and suggest ways to solve the problem in order to improve
the quality of the teacher’s training system and professional development in Russian
colleges and technical schools.
Methods. Analysis of scientific publications, documents in the field of education and
labor, generalization and systematization of the findings.
Results. Different approaches to the formation of the VET teacher’s skills list have been
identified, which do not focus on specific pedagogical qualifications, but instead are
formed around pedagogical activity in general or an ideal generalized portrait of a
modern teacher, which makes it difficult to apply the proposed lists of skills in the
teacher’s training system and professional development or to improve the procedures
for assessing professional pedagogical qualifications. The approach of functional
analysis and level description of the requirements of professional and pedagogical
activity with subsequent division into specific qualifications is proposed. The approach
is instrumental in VET teacher’s training, professional development, career growth and
an objective assessment of their qualifications.
Practical significance. The results of the study can be used in the formation and
development of a modern professional and pedagogical personnel training system and
further professional education for VET teachers.
Funding. The research was carried out with the financial support of the Ministry
of Education of the Russian Federation as part of the state task «Development of a
model for the formation and improvement of the skills of teaching staff, including the
development of a methodology for modern assessment of the professional competence
of VET teaching staff based on monitoring the educational sphere and the labour market»
