1. Introduction

Searching for ways of student's personal communicative competence enhancement at the pedagogical college demands, primarily, defining its place and specifics among other fundamental social constants. The dictionary defines a constant as a 'stationary value': "continuous; occurring repeatedly; unchanging; faithful - unvarying quantity" (Weiner & Hawkins, 1985, p. 297); "1) ongoing all the time; frequently recurring" (Hornby & Cowie, 1982, p. 182). S. A. Lebedev interprets the fundamental social constants (FSC) as life-settling optima, which express the style, structure and order of maximally adjusted (in comparison to the ideal) social well-being. This is a maximum self-implementation in the sphere of spiritual reproduction (Lebedev, 2004).

The pedagogical sphere of activity is one of the most important fields of spiritual reproduction. We agree with the opinion of L. A. Zelenov, A. N. Smirnov and V. L. Lysyak who describe the pedagogical sphere as one of the main spheres of social activity, logically drawn, confirmed historically and empirically, being of a social constant character. The principle of humanism, which, according to L. A. Zelenov and the colleagues, presents the idea that a human is the uppermost value, runs through the whole pedagogic sphere. One of the humanism principle expressions, according to the fair belief of L. A. Zelenov and others, is the "respect for the person who is the active, not passive like 'the animated body' participant of pedagogical process, who is the co-author, co-subject of the activity (Zelenov, 2010, pp. 45-46). This thought is, in our opinion, consonant with M. V. Silantieva's reflections concerning such an educational constant as (Person): "Education doesn't and won't exist without it, without 'the person' who teaches and the 'person' who learns, without those who surround them" (Silantieva, 2011, p. 9). In this respect, it's appropriate to address the ideas of those scientists who perceive "the teacher" notion in a broad sense, as a 'teacher'system, which is not simply an assemblage of characteristics and qualities but a dynamic whole. "Being a highly professional, competent, mobile teacher makes the person an educational constant of the XXI century, and his task is also the upbringing as the number one priority of education" (Zeynalov, 2013, p. 198). The developed attention to another person, the ability to understand and to accept the communicative partner, soul sensitiveness, spiritualism, and the ability to manage communicative situations stipulates the teacher's success, his level of general and professional culture.

A person with a high level of culture is defined (by O. N. Zamyatina) as a social educational constant at any stage of social system development, under any social-cultural conditions. …
