life-sense orientations, profession, adolescence, transition of young people, pedagogical support, occupation, research


The article discusses students' personal growth and preparedness for their future professional occupation during their learning in a pedagogical university. The authors address the effects of involvement in professional occupation during their university study on the life-meaning areas. The following methods were used to conduct this study: questionnaire surveys; "Who am I?", a reflective self-assessment test developed by V.S. Mukhina; the life-sense orientation test developed by D.A. Leontiev; the Value Survey by Milton Rokeach; Occupational Motivation Methodology by C. Zamfir updated by A. Rean, and the statistical methods of empirical data processing: Pearson's x2 criterion and cluster analysis. The research covered the students of the pedagogical institute, with 100 students in the 1st through 4th year. The empirical research identified five subject clusters distinguished by their involvement in professional activities and life-sense orientations. The research allows us to view professional involvement during students' higher education periods as a factor of their professional motivation in the context of digital education.
