This was because both Geylang Serai VTC and Assumption Vocational Institute only took in students aged 14 and over. The attrition rate at these two centres was also exceptionally high — 60 per cent of students did not finish the two-year programme. There was clearly a need for the Ministry of Education (MOE) to plug the gap in the education system or risk students dropping out of school entirely. It was in response to this problem that NorthLight School was set up to give the less academically inclined students another chance at finding success in life. NorthLight students graduate with an ITE Skills Certificate (ISC) qualification in one of four areas — Mechanical Services, Facility Services, Retail Services and Food Preparation Services.
