Methods of developing management competencies of education workers in postgraduate education

Keywords: training courses, pedagogical education, training programmes, professional development, competence development.


The study aimed to identify methods for enhancing management quality in educational institutions and the professional competencies of education workers. Methods. The study involved the method of expert evaluations and the questionnaire survey. The obtained data were processed using the methods of mathematical statistics. Results. A total of 43% of respondents said they were satisfied with training programmes, while 45% replied affirmatively to online training courses and coaching. However, when asked whether the method helped develop management competencies, online training courses ranked second with 55% “yes” answers, behind coaching with 76%. Training programmes were the least effective method, according to the questionnaire, with only 23% affirmative answers. Conclusions. The study found that education workers' management competencies can be improved through methods like training programs, online courses, and coaching. The analysis of the results of the questionnaire survey showed that in general all three methods can be effective for the development of management competencies of education workers. Prospects. Further research could be improved by extending a sample size and using a variety of methods to evaluate the effectiveness of training programmes.
