In response, UIN Jakarta through the Faculty of Tarbiyah and Teacher Training which became one of LPTK PPG Kemenag prepare to compile PPG proposal at the FITK Leadership Meeting on Tuesday (02/27/2018) in FITK 2nd Meeting Room.

“The proposal is on process, and currently being improved for the improvement of Religious PPG curriculum,” said Vice Dean of FITK Academic Muhammad Zuhdi MED PhD in front of the Prodi and Prodi Secretary and a number of FITK officials.

What is enhanced, he continued, is not only PPG in-service curriculum, it also includes pre-service PPG for fresh graduate teachers.

He added, a four-month lecture with a three-month allocation for material depth and one month for field practice and National Competency Test (UKN).

“PPG is a subsidy pattern, the government only bears the tuition fee, the rest is borne by each participant,” he said.

Because of the pattern of Subsidized PPG, said Zuhdi, then UIN Jakarta can be one of the implementers of these activities. Because, to be able to implement PPG, Kemenristekdikti requires that the campus must have a building LPTK, while the building LPTK UIN Jakarta is still in the process of completion.
