Being a teacher is a professional career. As a professional teacher, he/she should be able to understand his/her students, master the teaching materials, plan-conduct-and-evaluate the learning process, and develop his/her professionalism and education. In other words, professional teachers should have professional and pedagogical competence. To get those two competences, teacher can improve his/her professional competence through academic education like universities or colleges; while pedagogical competence can be obtained from professional education like in-service education program (PPG). PPG is a program which aims at creating professional teachers who have competence in planning, conducting, and evaluating the learning process, supervising and training the learners, doing a research, and developing their professionalism continually. Further, this paper is going to elaborate in-service teachers’ professional and pedagogical competence during in-service education program (PPG). To be specific, this paper is going to describe in-service teachers’ English knowledge on understanding texts and how those texts work and their competence in designing lesson plan. The results show that the students of in-service education program (PPG) have to improve their both professional and pedagogical competence by doing a lot of exercises in understanding texts and how those texts work (concept and learning materials) as well as doing many practices in designing a good lesson plan.
