About us

In Latin Proverto means ‘going forward’ or ‘progress’.

Since 1992, Proverto Educational Publishers (BEE compliant) has played a significant and leading role in supplying learners in South African high schools with a unique brand of educational study guides free of charge.

Made possible by its advertisers and sponsors, Proverto has perfected its niche in the printed media by combining advertising and subject information in school study guides to create increased awareness of further study opportunities and career guidance for the learner or school leaver. We always strive to keep abreast with new ideas and innovative new products, keeping the changing landscape of our educational system and youth trends in mind. These colourful, user-friendly and information-packed study guides create the perfect stage for the advertiser to brand his company and to reach the youth market on a daily basis through education. These study guides have proved to be a successful advertising vehicle.

Proverto is acutely aware of the business objectives of the private sector. The high school learner as well as teacher market segment is an especially lucrative market consisting of teachers with stable income on the one hand and the attractive school leavers market on the other hand.

This is indeed a win-win situation for both advertiser and school leaver/learner.

What we do

Proverto, in collaboration with tertiary and corporate institutions, Seta's and Government, develops and distributes free study and career guides to schools nationally. Distribution mechanisms for study guides include physical delivery at schools, postal delivery, career shows, open days and are also conveniently available online via the Department of Education’s website.

Proverto sources the learning content for study guides in close consultation with the National and Provincial Departments of Education, from carefully selected experts and subject specialists. These study guides range from Grade 9 to 12 and cover crucial subjects such as Mathematics, Science, Life Sciences, Accountancy, Tourism & Languages. Proverto is committed to, at all times, maintain the highest possible academic standards.

New exciting future plans at Proverto are to launch free workbooks for primary schools. Proverto has successfully produced new printed career guides which include guides for Veterinary Science, Health Sciences and careers in Agriculture and will soon feature over 600 careers online to choose from.
