Skills Registry The Skills Registry provides a search engine for prospective employers (hereinafter “company” or “companies”) to review candidates who have registered on the system to advertise their availability and seek internships/learnerships or full-time employment; and for companies to engage with specific candidates with a view to offering employment opportunities. Where referenced, the words Skills Registry refers to the site www.skillsregistry.org.za. The Skills Registry is a free service provided to assist ICT skills development. Definitions “Candidate” refers to a person who registers to participate and be listed on the Skills Registry.
