The relevance of the issue under study is caused by the need to form a new socio-psychological paradigm in the field of environmental education. It was clearly shown by the beginning of the new millennium, that the current environmental education is based on analytical knowledge of nature, which is pragmatically narrow and consumer-oriented, and therefore it could not fundamentally change the worldview of a significant part of the population. As a result, there is an objective need for a transition to a qualitatively new stage in its development. The purpose of the article is to determine the socio-psychological factors that contribute to and hinder the formation of eco-vocational consciousness of students. The study methods: The leading method for studying this issue is modeling, which allows considering the socio-psychological factors that contribute to and hinder the purposeful formation of eco-vocational consciousness structural components. The article identifies the main factors contributing to the process of eco-vocational consciousness formation: the need for a value orientation for the co-evolution of man and the biosphere; the ability of the individual of perceiving, experiencing and comprehension the relationship between the current environmental situation and occupational activities; the willingness of specialists to consciously implement environmentally reasonable occupational activities; public interest in the knowledge, transformation and maintenance of the environment in optimal condition and other significant factors. The factors that prevent the formation of eco-vocational consciousness are identified: the absence of a state customer for an ecologically-oriented vocational education; weak linkage of environmental training with vocational training; poor scientific and methodical provision of environmental orientation in vocational training, theoretical and methodical foundations for organizing the integration of environmental and vocational training; the need to coordinate and manage the system of electronic training, the creation of didactic complexes, appropriate methods. The data obtained in the work can be used in education to build effective educational programs for the development of eco-vocational consciousness; in practical psychology, in ecological psychology, as well as for further theoretical development of this issue.
