In the era of globalization and internationalization, it is irrefutably evident that the command of foreign languages – English is at the forefront of education agendas across the world. In the Kazakhstani context, a cultural project "Trinity of languages" suggested by the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan set a challenging task before the Language teacher training institutions that are responsible for training future language teachers. The ultimate goal of Foreign Language Teaching training in the Kazakhstani context is to develop fundamental knowledge, skills and competencies that are required for English language trainees in their future professional life. In this regard, meta-communicative competency is very essential for foreign language teachers working in the content-based classrooms. The level of pre-service teacher’s competency development defines their capability to form learners' foreign language communicative competence that enables them to use the target language to speak about the content or specific information. This paper,based on an ongoing research, discusses the conceptual framework of the term ‘meta-communicative competence’ and its components; it also discussescompetency-based approach as a theoretical framework of the development of meta-communicative competence of trainees.
