Improving the quality of teachers should be a severe concern of universities, including the University of Lampung, by implementing higher education reforms to produce prospective teachers with good competencies. This study aimed to examine the professional competence of prospective teachers in educating students who took the Teacher Professional Education Course (PPG) at the University of Lampung. The study used a quantitative approach, using a research sample of 310 students of Teacher Professional Education (PPG) of the University of Lampung with a questionnaire data collection technique. The method of analysis used descriptive statistical analysis with the help of the SPSS-26. The results showed that PPG students in a reasonably good category were as much as 40%, 25% were in a suitable category, only 6% were in an excellent category, 5% were in an inferior category, and 24% were in the poor category. In addition, there was no difference in the competence of Teacher Professional Education (PPG) students even though they were controlled by gender, age, teaching experience, and employment status.
