Teacher competencies can be researched in many different ways. In the present article they are studied from the learner's viewpoint. The article presents results of the extensive project "Teacher Education for New Competencies for the Knowledge Society and the Role of these Competencies in Educational Goal Attainment at School", carried out at the Faculty of Arts of the University of Ljubljana, with the financial support of the Slovenian Ministry of Education and Sport. We present the results of the learner's judgement of the teacher's didactic competencies. We formed a questionnaire with which we operationalised teacher competencies with the purpose of measuring the teacher's efficiency of instruction. In order to achieve the goals of modern instruction it is important to engage both models: learner-centred and teacher-centred education. The research showed that elements of the traditional instruction model are more frequently used than the model that demands a changed learner role. (Contains 3 tables.)
