The article analyzes the problems of teaching information technology that impede the formation of graduates of a high level of information competence. The causes of problem situations in teaching the subject are investigated: the low level of training of applicants in computer science and the weak motivation of freshmen to study it; organizational and substantive errors of school and university education. The authors propose approaches of a general nature to the solution of the problems considered: redistribution of the curriculum into stages; harmonization of requirements for school and university curricula; increasing the prestige of getting an education and introducing an entrance test for applicants; the introduction of modern hardware and software technologies and new forms of training into the learning process; reforming the system of advanced training of teachers. The implementation of the proposed set of measures will lead, according to the authors, to increase the prestige of the teaching profession in society and the quality of teaching, thereby improving the degree of preparation of graduates.
