This study determined the Bachelor of Science in Education Program factors and their influence on the Licensure Examination Performance and employability of the graduates covering from the school years 2016-2017. The present study was concerned about the licensure examination and performance of the graduates in terms of instructional facilities, performance, administration, faculty, research, extension, plant facilities, laboratory equipment and library. It also looked into the performance of the graduates. The respondents of the study are composed of 166 graduates from 2016-2017 who took up the Licensure Examination for Teaches from Laguna State Polytechnic University, Sta. Cruz Main Campus. The results of this study showed that female individuals dominated the teaching professions and almost half of the respondents are single. In terms of educational qualification, most of them are Bachelor of Science in Education graduates. However, only a few pursued in Master?s program. It was found out that the present position obtained by the BSED graduates was teaching with a frequency of 115 or 69.3%. While the levels of employability of the graduates, most of them were employed with a frequency of 92 or 55.4%. Most of the respondents were employed and permanent in an institution. In general, the respondents took up the Licensure Examination only once with a frequency of 159 or 95.8%. Most of the respondents had a board rating of 75.0 with a frequency of 83 or 50% and had only 1-4 years in teaching with a frequency of 139 or 83.7% questionnaire was used as a major tool in gathering the data needed. The statistical treatment was as follows: frequency distribution, percentage statistics and weighted mean. The data gathered used the stepwise multiple regression analysis in order to determine the influence of LET on the employability of the graduates. The independent variables considered in this study are as follows: instructional facilities, administration, faculty, research, extension, plant facilities, laboratory equipment and library. The person-related factors include age, gender, civil status, area of specialization, board rating and number of LET taken. The dependent variables were represented by the Licensure examination for Teachers and the employability of the graduates. It was found out that the LET performance and employability of the graduates have to be very evident and functioning well in terms of faculty, curriculum, research, extension, library, plant facilities, laboratory and administration. The LET performance and employability of the graduates are predicted by years of teaching, eligibility and training. But the dependent variable could not be predicted by moderating variables represented by Pearson-related factors. Furthermore, the researcher would like to find out the strength and weaknesses of the program and how this may help the Bachelor of Science in Education students to pass the Licensure examination.
