S1 Primary School Study Program


Education is a fundamental factor in shaping the nation’s character. The teacher is a professional educator with the main task of educating, teaching, guiding, directing, training, assessing, and evaluating students in early childhood education in the paths of formal education, basic education and secondary education. UU no. 14 of 2005 concerning Teachers and Lecturers in article 8 requires teachers to have academic qualifications, competencies, educator certificates, physically and mentally healthy, and have the ability to realize national education goals. This supports the mandate of the 1945 Constitution which is to educate the nation’s life. Article 9 explains that elementary school teacher qualifications are Diploma IV (D4) graduates or Bachelor graduates (S1). Therefore, the S1 Primary School Teacher study program offers education to produce prospective educators who are creative, innovative, professional and Islamic in character.

The enthusiasm and success of the world community in building elementary schools can be an inspiration and reflection for elementary school development in Indonesia. Commitment to expand access to quality elementary schools is an urgent work that must be realized. 2012 is the beginning of the determination to build elementary schools that can reach all levels of society to areas that are left behind, remote, and bordering other countries.

Academic competence and academic qualifications determine the success of improving the quality of the elementary school itself in accordance with the direction of government policy as stipulated in Law Number 14 of 2005 concerning teachers and lecturers and Minister of National Education Regulation Number 16 of 2007 concerning Qualification Standards and teacher competencies.

In line with the requirements of the above qualifications, in 2013, YARSIS STIKES changed its status to Nahdlatul Ulama University Surabaya. Primary School Teacher Study Program is a study program which obtained permission from the Higher Education Ministry based on Decree of the Minister of Education and Culture of the Republic of Indonesia no.265 / E / O / 2013 concerning permission to change the form of YARSIS STIKES to Nahdlatul Ulama University Surabaya (UNUSA) on July 2, 2013 which has a characteristic different from other Primary School Teacher study programs, namely the existence of small Doctor Education courses that show the characteristics of health-based universities.
