Future teachers are trained to know the subject theory and subject-specific teaching methodology, but this approach does not fit modern times. In training future teachers, particular attention should be paid to his/her soft skills development, most significantly through the networking cooperation. The purpose of this research is to build an effective model for networking cooperation that will contribute to a new type of teacher’s soft skills formation.  This article analyzes the soft skills that a new teacher should have and the existing models of partnership. There are introduced views on networking cooperation modelling to form the teacher’s soft skills stage-by-stage. The empirical component was conducted at the Elabuga Institute of the Kazan Federal University. The model can be applied to designing a training system, intended for teaching a new type of teacher. A vision of a school-university partnership model is presented that can be applied to allocate to pedagogically gifted children or as an integrated model for the basic soft skills formation at a university level.
