As engineering industry develops, absorption of new technologies and methods accelerates, social environment changes, more and more higher requirements are raised for vocational teachers. Vocational teachers should be able not only to plan their activity very accurately, know how to choose proper measures of knowledge conveyance, communicate and evaluate, but also to acquire strategical (subject – technological) competencies corresponding to the achievements of science, technologies and advanced practice and at the same time to anticipate vocational training to the needs of the labour martket. Vocational teacher should be able to use new technological equipment and technologies in order to help students to achieve high vocational standards. It is obvious that quickly changeable labour market requires from vocational training institutions for constant renewal, flexibility and openness that they would be able to satisfy not only regional or national labour market, but also international labour world requirements, i.e. that would be able to train qualified and competitive labour market specialists who are able to work with the newest modern equipment and knowing how to serve it. It is obvious that vocational skills and general competencies are more successfully communicated and demonstrated by that vocational teacher who is learning and improving constantly, looking for new teaching methods and integrates them into vocational training.
