The specific objectives were to determine teaching efficacy of Science student teachers in terms of student engagement; instructional strategies; classroom management and teaching with computers in classroom; their satisfaction with teacher education program and lastly to determine their attitudes towards teaching profession. Data were gathered using questionnaire. The sample size was 144. Findings indicate that a majority of the respondents had a high level of confident with their efficacy in term of student engagement (Mean: 3.89, S.D: 0.32), instructional strategies (Mean: 3.85, S.D: 0.33), classroom management (Mean: 3.83, S.D: 0.33) and teaching with computers in classroom (Mean: 3.89, S.D: 0.48). Pearson correlation showed that teaching efficacy and perception toward teachers education program were significantly correlated with each other (r = 0.464, p less than 0.05). The relationship between these two variables was positive and of moderate strength. In contrast teaching efficacy was weak and negatively correlated with attitude toward teaching profession (r = -0.146, p less than 0.05). (Contains 5 tables.)
