Author(s): Tatiana Zhukova, Vladimir Bogoslovskiy, Olga Yankevich

This paper is dedicated to the study of the professional competence adopted by multicultural processes in regions in Russia (on the example of students who learn entrepreneurship). With the changes in the educational policy, plural forms in teaching activities were allowed and should have been a recurring presence.

The main aim of the paper is to investigate why the variety of multicultural problems have remained in teaching and social practice both in many countries and in Russia, why the teachers are not ready to work in the class with a multicultural background and they have a low level of professional competence and what plural forms of work the teachers can use to teach students who learn entrepreneurship within the specificity of multicultural society.

The main hypothesis of this paper is theoretical and explains that the plural forms of work found are transitory and they are not only a result of increased efficiency of the varieties of teaching and social practices, but because plural forms have become a key strategic step in securing educational policy in regions and promoting greater growth of the professional competence of teachers who work in multicultural environment.

Moreover, it is argued that the higher institutional environment with multicultural background has a significant influence on the coordination of plural forms, directly interfering with their stability. Thus, we speak about the plural forms of work with students (on the example of students who learn entrepreneurship) and teachers which orient the new perspective to develop the professional competence of future teachers. That is important within the entrepreneurship education which has he aim to improve the students’ skills to work in a management environment.
