Abstract: The current educational environment should be conducive to the students' development, open to innovation, interactive, and stimulating the active participation of all participants in the educational process. However, in this context, it is important to design such an environment that would be developmental not only for students but also for teachers. Therefore, this study aimed to check how the observance of the principles of pedagogical partnership in the educational process affects the development of the teachers' competence. The Marzano Teacher Evaluation Model (2017) and the Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS) were used to identify the professional competence level. The implementation of the Pedagogy of Partnership program in general secondary education institutions had a positive effect on the development of teachers' methodological professional competence, namely: it increased by 10% among teachers of the English language, by 14% among teachers of the Ukrainian Language and Literature, and Mathematics — by 9%. It was also determined that there is a statistically significant relationship between the teachers' experience and their level of competence: the highest correlation is observed between the level of competence and experience from 5 to 10 years (0.988). The study revealed that teachers working according to the principles of the Pedagogy of Partnership use new forms of interaction and teaching methods, which helps to improve their methodological competence. Future research could focus on analyzing the use of information and communication technologies to support pedagogical partnerships.
