Academic supervision is a part of teachers' professional duties which is essential in improving the quality of education. In fact, its implementation still experiences many issues that a continuous evaluation is highly demanded. The study aims to reveal the barriers of academic supervision in Indonesia and suggests an ideal supervision model under the perspectives of pre-service supervisors. Data were collected through open-ended questionnaires given to 40 pre-service supervisors. Then, direct interviews with ten of them through Focus Group Discussion (FGD) were made. The data were analyzed qualitatively. After collecting the questionnaires, the researcher qualitatively analyzed the answers in essential points, according to their respective categories and themes. For data validation, the researcher selected ten of them to discuss in the Focus Discussion Group (FGD). After the validation, the researcher distributed them back to the participants to rank them from extremely important to the less important ones. The items with the score of over 70% were proceeded. Finally, the results revealed that academic supervision in Indonesia has many practical issues. Finally, this research provides some effective strategies to resolve them.
