Abstract

Relevance of the research topic. Today education as a form of training organization, systematic knowledge and information transfer to the next generations faces radical changes all around the world. Changes in current education system have lots of facets and their nature is reflected in different forms: learning process` sophistication, institutional forms` and organizational structure`s expansion, diversification of its financial mechanism. Ukraine is not an exception, since amid decentralization of its administrative and territorial system and the whole of society, it is important to provide these important processes with qualified personnel capable of effective implementation of the reform tasks, as well as to create conditions for economic sustainable development [1]. Implementation of strategic tasks for reforming the education system, which will increase its quality and competitiveness, the possibility of integration into the European and world educational space, determine the need to optimize the system of preparation and retraining of pedagogical personnel for vocational education. Formulation of the problem. The system of training of professional education faculty is more complex than the system of training of educators for educational institutions, which is due to a special place of vocational education in society - it belongs to economic, social and cultural spheres. Successful training and advanced training of teachers of professional (vocational-technical) education is a prerequisite for the effective functioning of vocational education in the country, since this is the basis for economic prosperity and social welfare of youth in terms of trouble-free transition from training to work. Therefore, improving the professional training and advanced training of professional education teachers means improving the training system of qualified personnel in the country. Therefore, there is a need to improve the training system of professional education teachers. Analysis of the last researches and publications. Significant contribution to the consideration of human capital development problems was made by Boginya D.P., Vovkanych S.I., Heets V.M., Holubets M.A., Hrishneva O.A., Dolishnii M.I., Zlupka S.M., Kanigina Y.M., Kolot A.M., Kuzmin A.E., Mocherniy S.V., Fedulova L.I., Khmil F.I.  [2-5] and others. Selection of unexplored parts of the general problem. The issue of reform process and power decentralization management to ensure national sustainable development is intrinsically linked to the educational reform process, so reforms` effective mechanisms study requires particular attention and in-depth theoretical and practical research. Therefore, there is a need to study the mechanisms of education funding in general and vocational training in particular in the process of decentralization and reform of the country`s administrative and territorial structure. Problem statement, research goals. The above circumstances are due to the expediency of modeling the coherence of the interests of the parties in the process of advanced training of professional education faculty. Method and methodology of research. In the process of conducting research, general scientific (analysis and synthesis, induction and deduction, analytical grouping) and special (abstraction, modeling, etc.) methods of studying economic phenomena and processes were used. Presentation of the main material (results of work). The analysis of the dynamics of the number of teachers of vocational education was conducted. It is established that they form a potential market for the provision of qualifications. Three approaches to the content of advanced training are considered. The first approach assumes that the content of professional development is formed by its own organizers. By the second - the content is ordered by those who are planning to improve qualifications. The third - the content is formed by the simultaneous efforts of those who enhances qualifications and those processes. Of the three approaches, the first one is traditional, but it does not take into account the specifics of the professional direction of educational institutions working with those who enhances qualifications. The second one is, on the contrary, takes into account their interests. In our opinion, the greatest efficiency of professional development can be achieved for a third approach, but it provides for the need to ensure the parity of the parties in this cooperation. In addition, taking into account the presence of competition among advanced training providers, an important aspect becomes not only the possibility of reaching an agreement, but also the quality of the service provided. In order to justify the expediency of using the third approach, the game theory was used. It is shown that the success of reforms in the system of vocational education can be provided by more active involvement in the process of retraining and improving the qualifications of teachers of higher education institutions. In our opinion, it is expedient to focus on organizing the training of teachers of subjects of the professional-technical cycle, senior masters and masters of production training, since the relevant system of retraining and advanced training of teachers of secondary disciplines is more branched. Conclusions. An analysis of the dynamics of the number of teachers in the system of professional (vocational-technical) education showed the presence of periodicity regarding their number, which practically fully corresponds to the situation regarding the number of those who they teach. The main approaches to improving skills are considered. With the help of the game theory it is proved that the greatest efficiency is possible to achieve if the approach is used when the content of advanced training is formed by the simultaneous efforts of those who enhances qualifications and those processes. It is shown that in such an approach, there is a possibility of taking into account not only formal features on the availability of advanced training, but also the possibility of assessing qualitative parameters of the service provided. This is an additional competitive advantage for providing these services on a competitive advanced training services.
