Materials and Methods. The methodology of the research is based on the competence approach. The solution of research problems was conducted by a set of complementary theoretical methods (analysis of domestic and foreign theory of education, practice and experience in the field of innovation); general scientific methods such as classification, modeling, comparison, and generalization; experimental methods involving diagnostic tools, mathematical-statistical processing and expert assessments. For the experimental part of the work, a special diagnostic toolkit has been created to identify the advanced, basic, threshold and insufficient levels of the formation of a complex of competencies for the activity and reflective indicators Results. The ideas of using innovations in initial teacher education are summarized. The synectic method is revealed as an innovative approach to learning, which focuses on group project-research activities for the search for educational innovative ideas on the basis of an active critical discussion. The effectiveness of the synectic method for the ability to work in a team, tolerance to social, cultural and personal differences and readiness for active interaction with participants in the educational process is experimentally proved.
