Ukraine is undergoing reform of higher education and the transition of a professional training system for social workers to implement a competency-based approach. In particular, the reform involves the introduction of HEIs standards of higher education in the “social work” discipline. This article aims to form recommendations to improve the professional training of social workers based on foreign experience in implementing leading educational practices. The research methodology is based on the comparative analysis and evaluation of HEIs educational programs of the first, second, and third levels of social workers’ training. The HEIs system in Ukraine does not have clear-cut requirements for the training program of future social workers. Each HEI develops it according to the established and approved template in this particular institution taking into account available human, material, and technical resources and needs of the society; it is licensed and accredited. Educational training programs for social workers are developed according to higher education standards. HEIs also create educational programs for social workers in Ukraine, taking into account the requirements of the National Qualifications Framework based on European and national standards and the principles of quality assurance in education. The HEI analysis of educational programs’ profiles of social work training shows the introduction of a competency-based approach to the training of future professionals. It is reasonable to include such descriptors as the application of knowledge and understanding, formation of judgments, and ability for further learning and development
