Based on empirical research, this study aims to identify, evaluate and define the qualities of teachers’ competencies in teaching Visual Literacy with regard to the newly defined ‘expected outcomes’ of the Czech curriculum as well as to the students’ competencies of the CEFR-VL. Qualification works at the University of West Bohemia (Západočeská university v Plzni) and the Charles University in Prague (Univerzita Karlova) were analysed in regard to the required professional competencies of art educators. The most used typology of professional competencies of an art teacher (Slavík, 1993) in the Czech Republic has been updated (Uhl Skřivanová, 2015) and has served as an instrument for the diagnosis of art teachers’ competencies in terms of the research presented.
