Abstract. The article deals with the aim to demonstrate the necessity of the implementation the teacher competency model as the innovative tool in human resource management. The authors achieved this goal by researching the international legal and economic experience in the context of digitalization, as well as its application in the Chinese educational sphere. Various methods of scientific research were used by the authors to establish universal scientific standards for the selection, evaluation, training and management of teachers’ work. Using the survey method, the interview method and the expert survey method, the authors identified and summarized certain terms regarding the competencies of university teachers. Using the statistical research method, the reliability of the model was evaluated. Factor analysis was used to verify the certainty of the structural model. The application of the Delphi method provided the expert group with 30 important competencies. Respondents to the expert survey were teachers from the local universities in 8 provinces in the Eastern, Central and Western China. The method of factor analysis of data allowed the authors to form their own model of competence of teachers at the Chinese universities. The model proposed by the authors has: 1) four dimensions: basic qualities, pedagogical competence, research competence and competence of social service; 2) contains 22 indicators of second-level competence, which, unlike existing models, takes into account all research results and doesn’t ignore the possibility of employees’ professional development, even in the case of low rates of every person. The applying of the proposed model on practice will allow HR professionals not only to pay attention to the current assessment of the performance of university teachers, but also to be the effective tool for comprehensive assessment of teachers’ competencies under conditions of digitalization.
