Abstract: 

Introduction. The authors investigate the problem of developing cognitive culture in undergraduate students pursuing their degrees in education. The purpose of the research is to identify the characteristic features of developing prospective teachers’ cognitive culture by means of solving career-oriented tasks.
Materials and Methods. The research methodology is based on the following theoretical methods: analysis and synthesis of research investigations on developing prospective teachers’ cognitive culture by means of solving career-oriented tasks. The authors have also used such empirical methods as questionnaires and mathematical processing of statistical data.
Results. The authors have clarified the concept of ‘cognitive culture’ and identified its components. The study has evaluated the level of cognitive culture among first- and fourth-year students studying Education. The authors provide the criteria and indicators for evaluating the investigated quality and present an education technology for solving career-oriented tasks aimed at developing students’ cognitive culture.
Conclusions. The study concludes that implementing the technology of solving career-oriented tasks within the framework of initial teacher education (training) contributes to developing students’ cognitive culture as a part of their personal culture.
