Abstract

In the given article I deal with the problem strictly connected to depicting a master in an occupation of an early stage teacher. The fundamental assumption here is that gaining and developing certain professional teaching competences is equal to the prospective occupational development of a teacher, who, on the other hand, is depicted by his career. And this is the way to their pedagogical mastery. The matter I deal with became the starting point to the empirical researches run in both rural and urban environments. 529 teachers, whose professionalism was evaluated on the basis of their self-esteem, and assessed by 101 school directors and also the assessment run by methodological advisors with the reports on evaluation, took part in this research. The results of this empirical documentation constitute the basis for the quantity and quality analysis of the index determining the level of the given pedagogical competences and their factors. On the basis of which it was possible to formulate the picture of an early stage teacher- the master in their occupation.
