About Us


Who is SkillGate?

Based in a beautiful converted barn in the heart of the South Downs National Park, SkillGate Ltd has been providing online learning services to some of the world's leading companies for over 20 years.

We offer:

  • one of the industry's most advanced Learning Management Systems
  • a huge range of online training courses - covering regulatory and self-development training
  • and the WhizzAuthor authoring and publishing system. See: www.whizzauthor.com.
  • We draw upon our years of experience to make sure we create software that ensures the smooth management of staff training and development. Meanwhile our courses meet and exceed the standards set by the millions of professionals who have completed them and cover a hugely diverse range of subjects.

    Our dynamic team is made up of trainers, authors, programmers, designers, account managers and marketeers who love a challenge and are dedicated to finding solutions to your training needs.

    Our approach is based on our 3 pillars:

    1. Scalability

    SkillGate learning systems manage learning for any sized enterprise from 5 to 150,000 people. Our modular approach allows you to pick and choose from seven core products (and large range of administration support options) to build a learning environment relevant to you.

    2. One Stop Shop

    Our aim is to make your life as simple as possible by offering you the full range of training and administration tools AND content in a single source. For this reason we build all our own software and create our own courses.

    We appreciate we may not always cover everything you want, so we partner with specialist trainers and build our software to industry standards so that you can mix and match if/when you need to.

    3. Effective Learning

    Because we build training delivery systems and content, we are focused on what really works for delegates. We spend a lot of time analysing completion rates and testing new techniques to obtain the best results. For example, did you know SkillGate was the first organisation to offer 'bitesized' learning in the UK?

    We believe the key to completion is motivation. For this reason we use different delivery systems for mandatory, performance management and tutor supported online learning.

    All of these lessons have been incorporated into our unique course authoring system, that allows your subject matter experts to create courses quickly.
