Drawings on lined paper? Not exactly material for a portfolio.
Not enough details on your 3D and level work. Images are too small and I don't get to download and play the level. If you are doing Surfs then videos would be extremely useful.
Same again with programming, not enough detail.

Later on I bought my own domain where I published and sold maps and reviewed all forms of map related material on HalfLife2/ CounterStrike:Source from DVD’s, to books, to websites.
Where is this site? How many did you publish? How many did you sell? Through what period?

For Work Experience I worked in an E-Communications company. During that time I learnt the basics of programming, workflow/ project management and how an office is managed.
So what did you actually do? What did you program? How? Which workflow was used? How was it managed?

What follows is mostly a list of applications I was introduced to during School, College, or University. I have used these applications and continue to use the majority of them in developing small projects.

* Macromedia Director, Dreamweaver
* Microsoft Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint, FrontPage
* Adobe Photoshop CS3, Illustrator CS3, Flash CS3
* Autodesk 3ds Max
* Source SDK, Hammer Editor

These are the languages I have learnt.

* C++, Visual Basic, Java, C#, HTML/ XHTML, PHP, MySQL, CSS, JavaScript, AS3
What have you used them in? Where can I see them? HTML, CSS and MySQL are not programming languages.

The site I sold maps on because I closed it and didn't back it up I guess i won't bother mentioning it.

I changed the work experience bit:
Quote:
In school I did work experience in an E-Communications company for two weeks. During that time I was asked to do some code maintenance in C++ and installed software onto computers as well as see how an office works.
For the last bit is this the kind of thing you meant? was a bit confused about what you said:
Quote:
|*Macromedia Director, Dreamweaver (I used Director to build the majority of the games at university and dreamweaver to build my website)
*Microsoft Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint, FrontPage (I used these in college in order to do letters, spreadsheets, charts, presentations, memos and create simple websites)
*Adobe Photoshop CS3, Illustrator CS3, Flash CS3 (I used photoshop and illustrator to make 2D textures for my university projects)
*Autodesk 3ds Max (I used this to make my 3D models for university projects)
*Source SDK, Hammer Editor (This is the map editor I used to make the maps for HL2/ CS:S)

These are the programming/ web languages I have learnt.

C++, Visual Basic, Java, C#, HTML/ XHTML, PHP, MySQL, CSS, JavaScript, AS3
Also thanks for the advice so far. Its been really helpful.

Looks okay, but I think you need to flesh out your projects section. Personally, I wouldn't go with lime green on grey/white as there isn't enough contrast.

MySQL is a database system, not a language. I think you mean SQL.

I think more, and larger in-level shots would be a lot more suited to this kind of portfolio.
