We reveal the concept of “professional development”, analyze the specifics of teacher professional development. We single out the dimensions of teacher professional development: professional activity, personality, professional thinking. We show the importance of the humanistic sense of professional development of a teacher in the development of the child's personality, as well as the role of education as a factor determining the professional development of teachers. The attention is focused on the development of a research position in teachers, which can be considered as the psychological content of teachers’ vocational education. We show the specifics of cultural-historical and activity approaches in addressing the development of a research position of teachers and their professional development.
