Introduction. Social and economic, political changes, which are now being introduced in Ukraine in all spheres of social life, are the reflection of the inadequacy of the new approaches and ways of solving the problems of the modern specialist’s professional training. The changes that take place dictate the necessity to form a personality who is able to live in conditions of uncertainty, creative responsible personality, stress-resistant, able to carry out constructive and competent actions in various spheres of life activities. The education system should form such a quality as professional universalism – the ability to change spheres and ways of activity. In this context, the most actual become professions of social sphere.

Purpose. On the basis of the scientific work analysis to characterize the main groups of key competences of specialists in the social sphere and to develop a model of their formation in the process of professional training

Methods. We agreed with our contemporary positions on social and pedagogical activities, the purpose of which is to assist various categories of people to meet their needs for self-realization and selfaffirmation in a social environment or to restore socially approved ways of human life; with the concept of competent approach in education, which reveals the structure, essence, content and result of modern professional education and the theoretical bases of professional education of social sphere specialists.

Results. It is revealed that the activity of specialists of social sphere, in particular, social pedagogues and social workers, is multidimensional and multifunctional, aimed at solving a wide range of social, substantive, procedural, and personal tasks. The approach to training a modern specialist on the basis of competences is the most promising. It allows you to see the picture strategically as well as to provide high flexibility. It has been stated that "competence" serves as the main tool for modernizing the content of education, since it combines the intellectual and skill components of the education result, integrates the skills and knowledge that relate to different areas of professional activity.

Originality. Having analyzed the work of home and foreign scholars and taking as the basis the key competences approved by the European Council and based on the realities and needs of the domestic social sphere, taking into account the content and structure of socio-pedagogical activities, the key competences of specialists in the social sphere are described: social, intercultural, communicative, informational, cognitive (personal). Theoretical analysis of scientific literature on the problem under study has become a prerequisite for modeling the system of formation of key competences of social sphere future specialists in the process of their professional training.

Conclusion. Formation of key competences of future social professionals in the process of their vocational training is based on interdisciplinary, integrated requirements to the result of educational activities, requires further scientific research, since it requires the participants of the educational process to change both the purpose and the vector of the higher education content: from transferring knowledge and skills of substantive content to the formation of a developed personality with life and professional competences. Further attention should be paid at: the development of the third generation standards, expansion of the interdisciplinary component curriculum structure, introduction of integrated educational courses, search for models of creation of an integrated system of multi-level specialists’ training in modern conditions, based on socio-cultural conditionality of educational policy, philosophical concept of creativity as the fundamental basis of human life.
