The paper focuses on the outcomes of an empirical research of professional competence in linguistic disciplines instructors at a military institution of higher education from a position of ecopsychological model of agency formation. The sample of the research consisted of 38 instructors aged 25 to 76 years belonging to civilian staff. The paper considers what agency qualities the instructor should possess to perform the necessary didactic actions providing feedback and intensification of the educational process. The authors show unevenness of gradual formation of the instructor’s agency. Discriminant analysis of the obtained data revealed deeper differences between the stages of agency formation and influences of action-related characteristics (according to the terms of competence approach).As a result, the paper identifies four groups of instructors differing in their agency features and stages of professional competence development. Besides, the authors formulate the most appropriate conditions of teaching to release the instructor’s agency and implement the ‘subject’s self-transformation’.
