The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) wants every Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) all over the country to have a pool of Faculty members that is equipped with the necessary knowledge to deliver quality education/learning to students. Align with its vision; the Commission issued
a Memorandum Circular No. 43 series of 2005 also known as the Consolidated Implementing Guidelines of the Higher Education Development Project-Faculty Development Program (HEDP-FDP) for all HEIs in the country. There are various studies relating the impacts of FDP to the performance of Faculty members. However, its implications on students’ licensure examinations have limited literature. This study sought to answer the implications of FDP to students’ licensure examinations. The study used the qualitative and quantitative method. Data were analyzed through statistical and qualitative analysis. Interviews were done to the identified key informants to support the data gathered from the survey. The result shows that the three private colleges offered different programs with licensure examinations. The majority of the student population was enjoyed by the program with licensure examinations. The national passing rate revealed that most of the programs have a higher passing rate in the national passing rate. The data also revealed that the three private colleges offered common FDP, and most of the Faculty members availed the program. The survey result disclosed that FDP has a significant relationship to Faculty members’ performance regarding leadership and classroom management. Based on the findings, the conclusion was made that program with licensure examination has the most number of the student population. Most of the programs have higher passing rate in the national passing rate, and most of the private colleges supported their Faculty members to avail FDP. Through FDP Faculty leadership and classroom management significantly improve that has implications on students’ licensure examinations. This study recommends that in every HEI, FDP should strengthen its implementation as found important for better teaching/learning process.
