The purpose of the article is to describe the separate accents of the deinstitutionalization implementation in Ukraine at the present stage and to reveal the level of students’ understanding of the essence and features of this process. To uncover the essence of the problem of deinstitutionalization in the study, the following theoretical methods were used: analysis, synthesis, systematization, comparison, as well as empirical methods such as (questionnaires, conversations) graphical data visualization methods.

The basis vectors of deinstitutionalization were identified for the purposes of implementation the National strategy to reform the institutions of institutional care and education of children in modern conditions. The issues linked to understanding by students (future social workers and social educators) the nature and features of reforming boarding institutions. It is found that a large number of students do not understand the directions, components and strategic results of deinstitutionalization as an innovation in social work. They have no vision of the negative impact of boarding school on child development. Students do not sufficiently understand what the best interests of the child are. It is established that the problem of students' unpreparedness to deinstitutionalization increases the weaknesses and risks of the reform process of boarding school in general. This causes considerable resistance to change, slowing down the process, its misunderstanding. Based on the mentioned problems, we highlighted the task to train students of specialty "Social work" as subjects of deinstitutionalisation process
