A 21st century pedagogue is one of the principal figures governing the process of human development. He or she is the main guardian both of nation's spiritual potential and that of humanity in general; the teacher is a professional, a master of up-to-date wealth of educational technologies, and a bearer of intellectual capital who is able to use it effectively in practice.

Nearly 808 students study full-time in 42 groups at the faculty of pedagogy and psychology, and another 807 students study part-time in 31 groups.

Structurally, the faculty comprises the following departments:

  • natural science disciplines;
  • psychology;
  • technology and fine art;
  • preschool and music education;
  • pedagogy;
  • theory and practice of physical culture;
  • social and humanitarian disciplines.

The faculty departments are staffed with 135 full-time members as well as 25 highly qualified educationists. Among the staff members are both experienced teachers having academic degrees and titles and rich life and professional experience, and young teachers doing their postgraduate studies. The average age of the staff members at the faculty is a little over 40.

The academic staff of the faculty concentrates on 3 significant areas of their work: scientific research, teaching and educating, having won considerable achievements in each of them. Scientific findings obtained by associate professors S. Ryndevich, Z. Lukashenya and K. Tristen have been repeatedly presented at international and national theoretical and practical conferences and scientific forums. Scientific research carried out by the heads of departments N. Dubeshko and A. Rudneva, senior lecturers V. Zuev, A. Seleznev and V. Kozel is practice-oriented and has direct access to the solution of important social problems. Annually, students' scientific papers submitted to national competitions of students' research receive 1st-, 2nd- and 3d-category awards. Teaching resources and materials in pedagogy written by associate professor V. Khitryuk have won a high appraisal in the country.

The faculty's academic staff considers their top priority to train highly qualified specialists and foster intellectually wealthy individuals. To meet this challenge, the teaching and educational process is approximated as much as possible to practical activity. The curriculum of every course stipulates various practical training. The Departments of Preschool education and Pedagogy have opened up their branches at the creche-kindergarten No. 57 and school No. 10, where they conduct active scientific research and test new teaching and educational technologies. The branch of the psychology department works effectively at Baranovichi medical centre for children with psychoneurological disorders.

While studying at the faculty, the students make use of 4 special-purpose laboratories: a laboratory of teaching techniques, a biological laboratory at the department of natural-science disciplines, including a hothouse and aquarium facilities, and laboratories of clothing manufacture and food processing technology at the Department of Technology and Fine Art.

The educational and ideological work at the faculty is aimed at developing a socially active personality which is facilitated by the system of student self-government and the students' active participation in volunteer work, contests and festivals held at the university. It has become a tradition of the faculty to carry out charitable actions aimed at supporting the residents of the municipal social shelter. Last year the faculty carried out anti-AIDS training actions, recital contest devoted to the Belarusian actor and director V. Golubok, and some other activities. The academic staff of the faculty is constantly looking for new forms of educating a young specialist.
