Service Skills Centre (R&R Associates) has been a government funded registered training provider for over 30 years in Rotorua.
Previously known as Fashion & Faces Ltd, the company for many years focused on training in Hair and Beauty.
Our focus in now on Youth and achievement of NCEA L1 & 2, this is provided FREE through Youth Guarantee Programs for 16-19 year olds (15 year olds with an exemption). Using units standards in Hair, Beauty and Retail to make up the NCEA, our salons provide contexts that develop skills for working in any service industry. Students can also achieve New Zealand Certificate in Foundation Skills Level 1, New Zealand Certificate in Retail Level 2, and New Zealand Certificate in Salon Skills Level 2.
The big difference is students can start any time of the year as they work on their very own individual pathway of units, they are then supported individually. We aim to ensure students can achieve knowledge and skills that will progress them into work or onto further study/training, so that we can support them on their own pathway.
