We constantly see that the modern methodological science is updated very quickly. It is necessary to constantly perceive the new technologies, teaching models, educational approaches, combine them, provide them with practical guidance, supplement and implement them. The article refers to the competence approach implementation, which is now seen by teachers as one of advanced ways that directs the educational process to achieve the results, i.e. formation of the core competences of graduates in general and specialized subjects. The author points out the approaches to the social competences formation taking national traits, features of character, mentality of the Ukrainian people into account. Those are clearly reflected in the works of Ukrainian art, because this issue was not given the necessary attention in theoretical works and practical research of scientists and methodologists.
