Conceptual model of professional orientation of the population in regard to the profession of an “investigator”

Keywords: professional orientation, conceptual model, stage of professional personal identity, an investigator


The main approaches to constructing a conceptual model of professional orientation of the population regarding the choice of an investigator’s profession have been provided. It has been noted that the productivity of the offered model is provided by modern principles and approaches of career guidance. Among the main approaches the author has defined: socio-economic, psycho-physiological, psycho-pedagogical and differentiated approaches.

The main structural elements of the given model have been studied: the purpose, basic principles, main tasks, conditions (regulatory, organizational and methodical, psychological and pedagogical) and factors (objective and subjective), objects and subjects of vocational guidance; methods, forms and means of its implementation at each stage of the phase of professional personal identity.

It has been emphasized that a special role in exercising the career guidance regarding the selection of police professions should be directly attributed to employees of various police departments, educational institutions with specific learning conditions and the cadets who study there.

It has been noted that depending on the stage, when the professional orientation activity is carried out (primary, secondary, tertiary), a complex of appropriate methods and forms is used that gradually leads to the young person’s realization of conscious, independent, motivated professional choice on the basis of individual abilities, needs and interests.

It has been emphasized that the balance of all elements and processes of the indicated conceptual model is the basis for achieving optimal results at each stage of professional personal identity.
