Abstract: In Russia, with the advent of new educational paradigm, the role of the teacher in the student’s life has changed. However, there is still a need for a teacher’s professionalism and a high level of competence, since the quality of student training depends on it. The purpose of the article is to offer a tool to improve the professionalism of teachers. In the article, the authors denote the problem of assessing the professionalism of the teacher, identifying the level of his professional competence. At the same time, emphasis is placed on such important components of teacher’s professionalism as creativity and communication. Determining the level of creativity and communication is often a prerequisite when applying for work in world practice and in Russia. Unfortunately, the definition of these personality traits among education employees in Russia is not adopted at the legislative level. Therefore, the article proposes the use of a four-level classification of the analysis of teachers’ quality of work as well as the designation of the importance of introducing a short e-course to improve the professionalism of teachers. With the help of a survey among teachers from various universities in the city of Nizhny Novgorod, it was found that the proposed course is in demand. To the question “In your opinion, will the Innovations in Higher Vocational Education System courses help you in improving professionalism?”75% of respondents gave a positive response. These results suggest that the introduction of these courses will yield positive results. The article presents the experience of assessing the formation of competencies of teaching staff at Minin Nizhny Novgorod State Pedagogical University which consist of several stages: Stage I self-diagnosis, Stage II: a direct assessment of competency formation, Stage III: creation of conditions for the completion of competencies. These recommendations will solve the problem of assessing teachers’ professionalism, to identify the level of his professional competence and growth prospects.
