Development of the Ideological Culture of the Future Primary School Teacher in the Conditions of the New Ukrainian School


The value system of the Organisation of the New Ukrainian School (NUS) aims to adapt the education system in Ukraine to progressive international standards in terms of prospects for Sustainable Development and lifelong education, while preserving the best traditions of national pedagogy. In the vector of such ambitious plans and positive prospects for qualitative transformations in education and other social existence areas, the NUS teacher's personality acquires central significance. The problem of developing a worldview culture become central. We propose to define it as a “positive worldview culture of the teacher”. The study aims to mutually integrate the concepts of the worldview culture of primary school teachers and the ideological, axiological and practical aspects of the NUS implementation. In preparing the study, the authors used observation, description, complex analysis, analysis of the regulatory framework for the implementation of the NUS and the updated standard of education, functional method, comparison method, System Analysis, generalisation and abstraction. As a result, the study analysed the concept of the worldview culture of primary school teachers, defined the directions and sources of developing worldview culture of future primary school teachers, and structured the main desirable features of the worldview culture of the future teacher of NUS formed during studying at HEI. The study found out that ideological culture is associated not only with the intellectual development and assimilation of universal knowledge in a ready-made form (uncritically, without rethinking), but also with the interpretation of this knowledge in the light of personal experience, personality-oriented values and attitudes. The article substantiates the importance of organising professional training of future primary school teachers to achieve a high academic indicator of mastering knowledge, practical skills, and a generalised higher level of competence readiness, which is a professionally determined worldview culture. The study actualises the necessity to pay increased attention to the part of organising the training of future NUS teachers to the fundamentally important concept of a positive worldview culture
