The purpose of the article is the theoretical justification of the main methods and means of developing the pedagogical skill of teachers of general education disciplines of vocational education institutions.

The work characterizes the main functions of teaching methods, analyzes their main classifications, examines familiar, traditional methods (lecture method, story, explanation, training exercises, explanatory conversation, discussion, independent work, instruction, etc.), as well as innovative: simulation and game methods, brainstorming method, problem methods, project method, case method, master class, work in pairs, work in groups, consultations, portfolio, method of situational analysis, coaching, tutoring, etc.

The professional skill of a teacher is an individual style, combined with high professional competence, which determines the ability to apply traditional and innovative technologies, to carry out professional activities regardless of the conditions of the social environment and the characteristics of students. That is why explanatory-illustrative, reproductive, and problem-based teaching methods (traditional and innovative) should gradually and purposefully implement cognitive activity, develop and improve professional skills within the framework of formal, non-formal, and informal continuous pedagogical education of teachers of general education disciplines of vocational education institutions
