The concept of the Face Place Institute of Aesthetics was formed as an adjunct to the Face Place Salon which offered services in Beauty Therapy and was the first of its kind when it was established in 1989. The Institute was launched to provide and enhance the skills of young school leavers as well as existing employees in the Beauty Industry. Since this early beginning, the Institute has expanded its student population, its quality academic and management systems and has also attained the accreditation of NCTVET for all the training programmes offered. The Face Place Institute also participates in Industry Lead Group Consultations in the development of both national and regional Occupational/Competency standards for Skin Care. The School is therefore qualified to prepare its students with the knowledge of all advances in skin care ingredients, procedures, technologies and therapies to practice their art with precision, professionalism and marketability for a successful career.
