At this stage of the development of the State Criminal Execution Service of Ukraine, the level of professional training of future specialists of penitentiary bodies and institutions is of great importance. The Service at the State Criminal Execution Service of Ukraine is a tense and responsible kind of professional activity, which puts highly stringent requirements to the staff.

The Academy of the State Penitentiary Service is called to prepare educated, morally perfect and competitive labor market specialists. Consequently, the relevance of this study is to study the psychosemantic sphere of the personality of the students of the Academy in the process of professional formation.

Psychosemantics explores the structures of consciousness of the individual through the modeling of the individual system of knowledge and the identification of those categorical structures, which may not be realized (latent, implicit, or latent). In general, the psychosemantic structures of the actual professional consciousness of the personality of the students remained virtually out of the attention of contemporary psychologists, indicating the degree of novelty and originality of the ideas laid down in the basis of this work.

The main scientific results in the field of theoretical knowledge consist in the study of the psychosemantic space of the cadets’ personality and the disclosure of his psychological content. The experimental results consist in the study of the characteristics of the psychosemantic personality space of the students who are studying at the  Academy, namely, the analysis of sociometric status and the role behavior model of students in order to study the characteristics of the psychosemantic space of the person in the process of professional formation; to study the psychological characteristics of the social environment of the students; to analyze socio-psychological factors of self-assessment of the personality of the students of the Academy.

The processing of experimental data was carried out using the method of content analysis and methods of mathematical statistics.

Key words: psychosemantic space, professional formation, social environment, personality of the  Academy cadet, sociometric status.
