System Analysis of the Future Educators’ Psychological and Pedagogical Training Experience
It is established that the integration of the higher education of Ukraine to the European educational space is connected to the problems of vocational education system reformation in order with the international requirements. It was determined that an effective way to implement the requirements to the future specialists' professional qualities is to diversify their professional training as well as to create and provide conditions for a positive synergy with the aim to ensure scientific character, conformity to culture, fundamentals, humanization, consistency, innovation, accessibility, unity and accessibility, continuity and diversity training for applicants. The research work deals with the terminological aspects of future specialists’ psychological and pedagogical training in higher education institutions. The essential analysis of vocational training teachers’ psychological and pedagogical training is based on the unity of pedagogical theory and practice and considers contextual education and upbringing, based on the laws and mechanisms of pedagogical creativity. The analysis of scientific works, published up till now by domestic and foreign researchers, made us come to the conclusions that one of the reasons for the backwardness of the students' psychological and pedagogical training is a low level of pedagogical science development, inflexibility of educational programs, fragmented courses, lack of practical orientation. Development of requirements for the training of vocational teachers, with sectorial and integrated psychological and pedagogical components, is a priority now. The main task of higher vocational education is to prepare teachers who are ready for the organization and implementation of fundamental, technical and vocational training in practice at all levels of vocational education: vocational schools, technical schools, colleges, professional lyceums and gymnasiums, etc. The research work analyzes the terminology and clarifies the concepts “training”, “vocational teacher training”, “general pedagogical training” and “psycho-pedagogical training of future specialists in pedagogical institutions”.
