The percentage result was scaled to determine the teachers’ professional and pedagogic competences. It was revealed that 81.6% of 358 teachers, or 292 teachers, had a good professionalism. Moreover, 222 teachers (62.3%) have mastered the material for teaching well. Teachers’ professional competence belonged to low category (43.2%).
