A conclusion on the need of the reciprocal movement of employers and educators in the process of
formulating specialist competencies was drawn on the base of the analysis of the priorities of the European
Commission. The justification for the principles of the formulation of competencies based on the functions
of the activities that are determined by the employer is proposed. The basic oxonmetric proposals for the
formulation of the functions of the activity have been developed and substantiated. The design, material,
technological, instrumental managerial, business functions were identified. Proposed functions are compared
with the curriculum for training specialists in several areas. The principles of measuring of learning
outcomes based on Dublin descriptors are defined. It was proposed to strengthen the share of the “autonomy
and responsibility” descriptor, the justifications for its formation and measurements are given. For this
descriptor in the formation of all the components of competence, formulated with the functions of the
activity, it is recommended to provide a real practical result. The forms of training, the most rational for the
formation of learning outcomes in accordance with the descriptors of "knowledge", "skills",
"communication", "autonomy and responsibility" are substantiated. A matrix model for the formation of
competencies based on learning outcomes has been developed. A qualimetric approach to the measurement
of learning outcomes is substantiated, on the basis of which the result of training is formed in an explicit
form. A criterion for the formation of competences in the form of the surface of learning outcomes is
proposed. The real level of competence of a specialist is compared with the requirements of the employer.
The possibility of a non-stationary level of learning outcomes was revealed.Comparison of a given and real
competence of a specialist should be made by groups of experts in the conditions of the counter policy of
employers and educational institutions. The proposed approaches are implemented in the preparation of
curricula for a number of specialties.
