The society requires competent specialists able to act successfully in any conditions of their labor. However, facts of life show that young teachers are ineffective in ambiguity and conflict situations. Thus, there is the necessity of training competent creative teachers who have well-developed creative potential, can quickly find adequate solutions in new situations, and are capable of creative self-fulfillment.       

The paper gives characteristics of the student’s creative potential as the necessary inner structure, which can be and should be developed at high school. The author suggests the theoretically based model of development of the creative potential of the teaching-professions students of the agrarian university. This model allows augmenting the creative potential structural components: creative activity motives, creativity, and certain personal qualities together with the high intelligence level.         

The experiment was carried out on the base of Volgograd State Agrarian University and involved 145 students of “Teacher education” (44.03.01) study program.  Within this model, the author suggested theoretical and technological tools for development of creative potential and carried out the students’ assessment at the beginning and the end of the experiment. The suggested criteria, indices, and levels of creative potential development allowed monitoring the dynamics of stage-by-stage change of the students’ motivation; of updating the database of knowledge on the creative potential and creative self-fulfillment; of the development of activity, initiative, behavioral flection, ability to cope with stress, and creativity.

The analysis of received quantitative results verified using the Student’s t-criterion showed the transition of most of the students (67 %) of the experimental group to the higher level of development of creative potential. Control group showed the similar index of 42 %.

The involved observation of the students during the traineeship allowed differentiating the students taking part exactly in the creative teaching activity.
