Pavlenko, Marina
Comparative Professional Pedagogy, v7 n4 p132-138 Dec 2017
The article analyzes the positions of foreign and domestic scholars on the problem of developing professional mobility of teachers. It has been stated that today professional mobility is a necessary component of training a skilled worker. It has been indicated that the teacher possesses an appropriate set of competences that provide an opportunity to be flexible, quickly orientate in the profession, to be competitive in the labor market, ready for further training, retraining and self-education. It has been specified that the factors that actualize these requirements are innovative processes in society; rapid aging of knowledge; the dependence of success in life on the level of education and profession; dynamism and rapid changes in the labor market requirements; the emergence of new professions and the disappearance of the obsolete ones. It has been justified that professional mobility is a complex, integrative, multifactorial entity. Professional mobility provides human development through the formation of key, general professional competencies; human activity, determined by events that change the environment (the result of the activity is self-realization of an individual both in the profession and in everyday life), the process of transformation by people not only themselves, but also their professional-life environment. It has been pointed out that mobility in the pedagogical sphere is determined by objective factors as well as in material production, its direction and intensity depends more on personal, subjective factors. The society is interested in such a specialist who is able to think independently and solve various problems, apply the knowledge gained in the learning process; possesses critical and creative thinking, formed in the process of education; knows how to acquire new knowledge, is capable of self-learning, self-education. It has been concluded that the perspectives for further researchers are seen in studying the problem of developing professional mobility of teachers in European experience.
