Abstract. The article is devoted to the analysis of the system of modern international standards WorldSkills, which are characterized by a specific system of training and assessment of formed competencies. The authors analyze the basic principles of WorldSkills in practical training and the possibilities of their use in the domestic system of secondary vocational education (SVE) on the example of professional training of future social work specialists. The analysis showed that the implementation of WorldSkills standards in the training of social workers, which began in Russia in 2016, currently has a positive experience of its implementation. The vocational training of open-source software is based on the principles of movement, which are described in the WorldSkills code, which influenced the process of forming a system of teaching materials, selection of equipment for a classroom, a fund of assessment materials and a format for conducting intermediate certification. The study also showed that the implementation of WorldSkills standards in the professional training of future social work specialists in the SVE system has external (participation in competitions, prizes, certificates and diplomas) and internal (student satisfaction with the format and quality of professional training, application of the knowledge gained in everyday life) performance indicators. The data obtained indicate the presence of certain difficulties, primarily of a resource nature, inherent in the modern process of introducing WorldSkills standards in the training of social workers in the VET system. For their effective solution, the comprehensive attention of executive authorities in the field of education and heads of educational institutions to the quality of training of young specialists is necessary.

Keywords: WorldSkills standards, training of social workers, competence-based approach, vocational training.
