SUMMARY. Most of the research efforts were made to investigate digital competence of teachers. Little attention has been paid to the analysis of digital teaching competence of trainers. The aim of the research is to analyse the digital teaching competence of trainers underpinning elaboration of a research question on on-line training for trainers. Materials and methods: The empirical study was carried out in South Africa in July 2016. Data collection was based on a questionnaire. The sample included 10 teacher trainers in South Africa. The data were processed via structuring and summarizing content analysis. Results: The digital teaching competence of trainers from South Africa is of the low level. Conclusions: A new research question is formulated: How to organise on-line training for trainers in order to increase the level of digital teaching competence of trainers? Directions of further research are proposed.
