The article deals with the essence of the practical component in the training of future teachers. A significant component of the professional training of future teachers in higher education becomes internship in educational institutions. In the process of pedagogical practice, the conditions are most conducive to preparing students to function as a primary school teacher. The project method of teaching students in high school is one of the components of the Worldwide CDIO Initiative (i.e. Conceive – Design – Implement – Operate). This method is aimed at providing students with the possibility of independent acquisition of knowledge in solving practical problems. Organization of practices and project activities are equally important mining tools for acquiring competences at all stages of study. In spite of the knowledge acquired in the course of training, competencies are formed only in the actual teaching activities. The CDIO format creates conditions for the formation of students’ professional competencies as stated in the federal state educational standards of higher professional education of the bachelor studies on ‘Pedagogical education’, profile ‘Primary education’.
