Transformational trends of the modern social and political-economic space determine the modernization of the educational sphere, in particular, the system and methods of teaching highly skilled foreign language teachers. Deficiencies in existing technologies for development professional skills, the lack of innovative, modernized techniques for training competitive teachers, as well as the need to improve the quality of teaching staff in some European countries require adjustment of methodological support for training of narrow-focused teachers; forasmuch as professional development and the competence level of  teachers directly affect the formation of socially-oriented, multifunctional educational systems in different countries of the world and determines the relevance of the issues proposed for the investigation. The purpose of writing an academic paper is to analyze modern methods of organizing the educational process of foreign language teachers and determining the basic factors that have a decisive influence on the level of pedagogical competence. The following research methods have been used during the writing of the research article, namely: comparison, system-structural research, statistical-analytical, tabular, graphical methods, analytical modeling, as well as methods of abstraction, analysis and generalization. As a result of generalization of modern teaching methods in European countries, it has been determined that general education practice involves the use of formal, non-formal and informal methods of training foreign language teachers. The non-formal and informal methods are the most effective of them, forasmuch as they are connected with the high level of the educational process’s coherence, professional activities and the practical aspect of applying the acquired knowledge. The practice of using non-formal technologies to improve pedagogical competence and qualification of foreign language teachers has become widely used in most European countries. A thorough analysis of non-formal education in Europe has determined that the most accessible is a multi-sensory approach to training that takes into account various aspects of language education and does not require significant financial support.
