Abstract. Changing conditions of society’s life, orientation to a subject position in the education system, the need for responsible and creative teachers, and other factors make it necessary to form and develop a future teachers’ active and creative position. The main postulate of the presented research: creative initiative is considered as an element of the basis for the teachers’ general professional and professional competencies formation. The article presents the theoretical and practical study results of the possibilities of pedagogical University students’ creative initiative development in a specially organized children’s magazine designing. The developmental learning and the cognitive interest’s development theories were chosen as the methodological base. The theoretical provisions of creative initiative development are briefly described. All stages of the study are described in detail. The preparatory stage is emphasized, which gave students historical and theoretical knowledge of children’s journalism. Important pedagogical conditions for the magazine’s design organization were the productive activity’s encouragement, independence, self-expression, emphasis on self-awareness as a subject of activity, the absence of criticism, and the process management’s softness. The subjects’ activity product evaluation was arranged on the seven criteria basis developed by the authors. The criteria system was correlated with the creative initiative’s components and General professional and professional competencies’ elements, while priority was given to the activity component and subjects’ specific skills. A detailed qualitative analysis of the design product with quotes from students’ reflexive essays is presented. The most of subjects demonstrated a high level of creative initiative development. In conclusion authors emphasized the effectiveness of using magazine design as a mean of future teachers’ creative initiative development.

Keywords: professional education, teacher’s General professional competence, teacher’s professional competence, creative initiative, children’s journalism, children’s magazines, designing.
