Currently, the modern education system is in the process of transformation processes. One of the directions of reforming the education system in Ukraine should be directed at improving the level of professional competence of teachers, their knowledge, skills and abilities. The purpose of the academic paper is to study approaches to the formation of professional competence of present and future teachers under the conditions of transformational processes in education. The following scientific methods have been used in the academic paper, namely: methods of theoretical analysis and description – in order to reveal the theoretical and methodological aspects of the development of teachers’ professional competence in the conditions of transformational processes in education; methods of grouping, comparison and synthesis - to consider the features of the development of professional competence of teachers in Canada and Ukraine. In Canada, the development of professional competence of modern teachers involves the preparation of an exam by educators, which would certify the high level of their effectiveness. Intercultural competence-based teaching methods, introduced at higher educational institutions in Canada, have a positive effect on the formation of professional competences of future teachers. In Ukraine, the key directions for improving the level of professional competence of both present and future teachers should be professional selfimprovement, which is achieved through purposeful self-educational activity. The professional activity of a teacher should include love for children, pedagogical foresight, knowledge of the subject of activity, pedagogical tact, innovative scientific and pedagogical thinking. The development of professional competence is a dynamic process of assimilation and modernization of professional experience, which leads to the development of individual professional qualities, the accumulation of professional experience, which involves continuous development and self-improvement. The professional competence of teachers allows not only applying basic knowledge and skills, but it also forms the ability to carry out practical activities in specific professional situations; it provides creative solutions to professional problems and makes it possible to easily navigate in a professional environment and possess a culture of work. The formation of teachers’ professional competence should be carried out on the basis of the general provisions of the system approach and the use of other scientifically sound approaches.
