Abstract: PCK is the important knowledge to develop professional skills of teachers and prospective teachers. The aims of study is to describe development Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK) teacher biology candidates in education program through consecutive approach. The prospective teacher in a consecutive program participants Professional Teacher Education (PPG) biologists who are alumni S1 biology. The development of PCK investigated for one year through the matriculation stage, workshops, peer teaching, and practice teaching, by using longitudinal study. Data was measured by cores and papers and the result was interviewing. As additional data implementation of learning by teacher candidates are also observed. The data were obtained through Core and papers the material transport of substances, were analyzed by using qualitative and quantitative descriptive using Concurrent triangulation design). Capability of PCK prospective biology teacher gradually increased from time to time, from pre PCK becomes Growing PCK. From these results it can be determined that the model is effective to improve PCK prospective teachers, model of teacher education candidates need to be gradual and structured early experience to prospective teachers to interact and gain experience in a school, for example, with the observation stage, preparing lesson plans with the teachers, co-teaching, and real teaching Through early recognition since the beginning of the teacher candidate already has knowledge of the school and students as well as other matters related to the teacher's task.
