Introduction. The need for reforming the Ukrainian education system, improving it and raising the level of the quality of training specialists is a major socio-cultural problem that is largely conditioned by the processes of globalization and the needs for the formation of positive conditions for individual development, socialization and self-realization in this world.

The process of modernization of higher education in Ukraine in the context of the Bologna Process most certainly affects higher education and higher education institutions. Taking into account the place and role of tourism in the life of society, the state, according to the Law of Ukraine "On Amendments to the Law of Ukraine "On Tourism", proclaims tourism as one of the priority directions of economic and cultural development and creates conditions for tourist activities.

Hypothesis of scientific research. The directions of training future tourism managers are considered on the basis of the model of a competent graduate. The criteria for the activity of teachers in higher education institutions and the possibilities for their selection are formulated. It is noted that the teacher should possess modern technologies of general and professional education, a set of effective methods and techniques, sufficient amount of professional knowledge to provide education for future tourism professionals (teaching, planning, management of didactic and educational systems).

The aim of this study is to highlight conceptual approaches to the preparation of future tourism managers.

Research methods:

– theoretical analysis - to determine the state of disclosure of the research problem in the psychological and pedagogical scientific literature, the study of normative and legal documents in the field of education;

– comparison, classification, generalization - for definition of joint characteristics of objects on the basis of processing and interpretation of theoretical sources on the problem of tourism education in universities;

– diagnostics (questioning, conversation, testing, observation, expert evaluation);

– mathematical statistics - for processing the obtained experimental data and calculating statistical indicators in order to test the effectiveness of the introduction of pedagogical conditions, models and methods of forming the readiness of future teachers for the organization of school tourism in the educational process of higher education institutions;

Results: an approach is proposed to build a holistic process for the formation of a student's personality, which should be based on the characteristics of his upbringing in the system of tourism: education through nature, culture (the principle of visualization), the formation of tolerance; humanization of relations, education in a group (team), ecology of the individual.

Conclusions: Work on developing the concept of professional training for future tourism managers led to the conclusion that a conscious and thoughtful program of actions for the organization of the educational process and vocational training precedes the training of students.
