Keywords:conflict management, readiness, border guard officer, pedagogical conditions, experiment
The article is dedicated to the research of the problem of forming conflict management readiness of future border guard officers. The concept "conflict management readiness of future border guards" has been defined. The structure of conflict management readiness of a border guard officer has been determined, which consists of motivational, operational and predictive components. The main criteria for assessing the motivational component of conflict readiness are motivational and regulatory, for operational - cognitive and operational, for predictive component - communicative and prognostic. The study proves that formation of conflict management readiness of future border guard officers is effective if the educational process at a higher military educational institution encompasses the following pedagogical conditions: creation of a favorable socio-psychological climate for the development of the experience of constructive resolution of conflict situations; the use of incentive measures to develop cadets' motivation for constructive resolution of conflict situations; enrichment of the content of professional training of future border guard officers with special knowledge about the nature, structure, functions of conflicts and mechanisms for their prevention and resolution; gradual acquisition by cadets of knowledge and skills of conflict management; ensuring a high level of psychological and pedagogical competence of teaching staff and leaders of training units of higher military educational institutions. Based on the Sectoral Qualification Framework for border guarding in European Union and Common Core Curriculum for training European border guards was developed a curriculum of the training course "Conflict Management in a Border Guard Unit" at the National academy of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine named after Bohdan Khmelnytskyi. The results of the pedagogical experiment showed effectiveness of the defined pedagogical conditions to form conflict management readiness of future border guard officers. The distribution of cadets by levels of conflict management readiness formation in experimental groups at the end of the forming experiment is characterized by a decrease in the number of cadets with a low level (from 48.81% to 21.01%), as well as an increase in the number of future officers with a high level of conflict management readiness formation (from 4,76% to 26,19%). As for the control group, there were less significant changes regarding the level of conflict management readiness formation.
