Where it Started

The company began as the Skills Portal website in 2003, and through the support and contribution of sector experts and prominent education entities it became a trusted name in skills development. Since its inception the brand has expanded to include four additional portals in order to meet the information demands of its growing audience. The company now operates under the banner of Portal Publishing. Portal Publishing continues to explore better ways of servicing its clients and audience.

Core Team


As the founding website the Skills Portal has maintained its reputation as a reliable and trusted source of information. We publish the latest newsworthy and thought provoking content pertaining to skills development, HR, education and training. We host a directory of training providers, where subscribers list their company details and courses online. We also have a quotes and venue section which enables direct interaction between providers and seekers.

The Careers Portal website focuses on providing information to young people seeking post-school opportunities. We publish the latest information on bursaries, learnerships, internships, college courses and other related content. While it has the youngest audience the Careers Portal is the fastest-growing portal. It is the ideal platform to reach the growing pool of prospective students.

The Jobs Portal connects employers to prospective employees by allowing advertisers to publish their vacancies free of charge. Job seekers can search the latest employment opportunities and they can subscribe to receive new job advert notifications to their email. These jobs are further promoted through our social media networks and newsletter subscriptions ensuring the widest reach.

The Bursaries Portal caters for students and professionals seeking financial aid for further study. Bursary opportunities are sourced from local and international entities that have made funds available to eligible applicants who meet the conditions provided in the financial contract.

This is a social networking site which primarily consists of skills development professionals and thought leaders in the training sector. The Skills Universe creates a unique space for information sharing, insightful debate and partnership building. It is the perfect place to connect with experts in the field of education and skills development.

Portal Publishing aims to make its content accessible to audiences nationwide by using social media platforms. Keeping abreast of technological advances and the latest communication strategies forms an integral part of the invaluable service we provide. We have a strong following on social networks like Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn drawing a range of readers through these avenues.
