Bilingual education, as one of the conditions for the implementation of a multicultural approach to education, is aimed at supporting the positive social orientation of the modern people consciousness: the need to study their native languages, the history of their native land and native culture.

In the Komi Republic schools, the teaching is carried out in Russian, and the curriculum provides the Komi language training, both as native and non-native. The purpose of the article is to reveal the effective pedagogical conditions (educational, methodical, information-methodical and research-methodical) to the formation of the future teachers’ ethnocultural competence for their professional activities in the bilingual environment of the Komi Republic. The leading research methods for this problem are analysis and generalization of normative, educational and methodical documentation and psychological and pedagogical literature, as well as a method of a design.
