The multiple regression analysis showed that efficacy was the major influence on the trainee teachers professionalism (, ß = 0.504, R2= 0.304, p=0.001). Moreover, path analysis of structural equation model (SEM) also showed that the regression model established fit with the data collected. Therefore, proved both two independence variables mentioned above were directly and indirectly correlated with the dependence variable. The Pearson correlation result showed that there was significant positive correlation among the variables involved. The independent samples t-test indicated that there was no significant difference between mean score of the dependent variable in relation of gender.
