- It is inevitable that professional teacher will not be realized without the contribution of Teacher Training Institute (LPTK). Therefore, LPTK holds a critical role which they do not merely have to award the teacher-to be with certificates along with the title of "Bachelor of Education", but also assure the professionalism of the teachers. Consequently, LPTK should be a multifunction institution which has well-structured-system, clear vision and mission, as well as the eligible stakeholder to build the Human Resources that is ready to develop the nation's intellectual life through its graduates. Furthermore, LPTK should move out from their comfort zone and start to elevate their quality according to the content of Higher Education Act year 2012 and maximize the implementation of Indonesian Qualifications Framework (KKNI) as well as National Standard for Higher Education (SNPT). Those are inevitable since the challenge faced by teachers/lecturers in this millennial era are becoming more complex along with the implementation of Curriculum 2013 which the target should have been achieved by 2020. One of the indicators of teacher professionalism is obtaining the teaching certification from Education and Training for Teaching Profession (PLPG), Professional Teacher Training Program (PPG), and other similar programs. Unfortunately, the existing amount of such teacher is incompatible with the real condition, as in terms of quantity, we are lack of teachers. According to the data from PGRI (Indonesian Teacher's Union) in 2017, there are 155,048 redundant teachers in the whole nation. Yet if we look at the smaller scale, in school, we have insufficient permanent teacher. Based on Dapodik 2016, there are 550,604 more teachers needed in Elementary, Junior High, and Senior High School. While in Vocational High School, there are 91,000 teachers needed. The role of LPTK in conducting both programs, PLPG and PPG, is a strategic plan in building professional teachers who are capable to achieve the objective of national education. According to several related research, one of LPTK such as Universitas Negeri Semarang has successfully conducted both programs for five years in order to produce professional teachers. The data acquired from the Department of Information and Communication Technology at Universitas Negeri Semarang in 2017 showed that PLPG and PPG are the eminent program in preparing professional teachers that UNNES has always been trusted by the government as the host LPTK to conduct both program.
