The purpose of the study is to analyze teachers' readiness to use e-portfolios for both self-evaluation of their own professional experience and continuous professional development. The article analyzes various approaches to the structure of e-portfolios based on the analysis of international experience, the legislation of Ukraine and the survey of teachers. The purpose, tasks, requirements of normative documents on the use of e-portfolios are generalized.The multi-level structure of an e-portfolio is defined and the requirements for its dynamic content are substantiated. Teachers' needs for advanced training in using a variety of IT tools for creating e-portfolios have been systematized. It has been determined that the use of e-portfolio can satisfy both the needs of evaluating the effectiveness of teachers’ work and the formation of self-esteem and reflection skills, facilitate teachers’ continuous professional development, dissemination of advanced pedagogical experience and teaching practices. Different types of e-portfolios have been analyzed. IT tools for creating an e-portfolio have been identified. The content of the corresponding educational module for teachers in the system of postgraduate pedagogical education has been substantiated. The content of a portfolio is defined by the goals of its creation. For teachers, the emphasis in e-portfolio creation is not on learning, as it is for students, but on professional activity, self-assessment, and marketing. The results can be teachers' understanding of why and how they have learned throughout their careers, the importance of reflection for future professional development.
