In a globalised world, the school class is the mirror of a changing society. This research aims to identify the readiness of students of the specialty ‘Pre-school education’ in Belarus and students of the LM Science of Education in Italy to work in a multicultural environment. Comparative analysis of social land in Italy and Belarus, confrontation of curricula and higher education programmes from the standpoint of the tasks of forming linguistic, communicative, ethnocultural and multicultural competencies, and obtained results from the diagnostics of the culture of interethnic interaction allowed us to identify the possibilities of creative extrapolation of the existing positive experience in the national educational systems. The research materials can be used to improve the theory and practice of multicultural education, and the quality of preparation of pedagogical personnel of pre-school profile for work in a heterogeneous educational environment.
Keywords: Intercultural education, multicultural competence.
