In this context, the objective of the article is to consider the "Primary Education" methodical competence-based components ¬– theoretic-methodological and technological – through universal metaprofessional competencies development; generalization of scientific methodical data. The material is focused on the theoretical proof and experimental evidence of the methodical competence establishment for future primary school teachers on the basis of fundamental academic disciplines. This research was based on the methods of theoretical analysis of scientific literature, testing, educational experiment and lesson observation, qualitative analysis of students’ work. The article presents a theoretical model of the levels for methodical competence among future teachers, with the criteria and their nominative and specific indicators. This model enables teachers to track the dynamics of methodical competence development among students of pedagogical departments at various stages of education.
