Z
To have ability and opportunity to work whenever and wherever you want.
Z
To have the ability to take control of your own life and your career.

Yes!  Then you need to follow our VA training.

I, (Amanda) am a Business Coach who specialises in supporting Virtual Assistants or those who wanting to start a VA business.  However, I am known for my honest, no-nonsense, straight-talking but compassionate support and advice.

You see, you already have the skills and experience of what it takes to be an awesome PA or EA but through a hybrid of coaching, training and mentoring, I effectively give you the roadmap and the tools you need to become  “the go-to VA”.

VACT graduates added an extra £3,224 onto their turnover, compared to VAs without any training and earned £2,104 more than with the next training company. Source: UK Virtual Assistant Survey v9 – for more information please visit: www.societyofvirtualassistants.co.uk

Accredited by the CPD Standards Office, you will study at your own pace through the VA Mastery Course and VA Membership and supported by your own VA Coach, Trainer and Mentor.
Z
Created by VA’s for VA’s – you will receive expert guidance, coaching, training and mentoring. From someone who has been there, done it (and made the mistakes so you don’t need to.)
Z
UK-based VA training courses learn how to set up a successful VA business
Z
Get support and inspiration from other great VA’s – my communities support each other in their set up
Z
You can complete your training, get set up and launch whilst you are still working!

What you also get when working with me is something you don’t find with any other VA Training Provider in the UK and that’s the personal touch. The program and the support you receive gets personalised to you – so we don’t just create the same VA business as every other VA out there. 

You see, over the years, I have learnt there are a lot of VA training and coaching courses out there, a lot of them are impersonal and fully automated. You get sent a vast array of information and left to do with it what you can (sometimes nothing). The information is cribbed from snippets they have picked up here and there, then cobbled together from what they learnt on their training course years before, perhaps prepping you on the general tasks and skills that are required to become a VA.  But they don’t prepare you for being the Business Owner. 

Your questions go unanswered, you feel unsupported and you are left floundering.  Not a good position in my eyes!

Well when you work with me – it’s the complete opposite, I am here with you inspiring, challenging you and supporting you to be the “Go-to” Virtual Assistant. But also helping you to create the VA business that is congruent not only with your core values but with the vision you have for your life and your business.

Praise for our Training Courses and Mentoring

“Signing up for the VACT Mastery Course with Amanda Johnson, was such a great decision for both me and my business.

Not only has it given me a full understanding of all the steps required to set up and run a successful VA business, training with Amanda has given me the confidence, the assurance and most importantly the self-belief that I was lacking in myself that I can actually make this work.

Amanda Johnson is just born to coach and mentor. She has the perfect balance of experience, knowledge, skills and ideas all delivered with energy in an innovative, relaxed and supportive way. She is however not afraid to give you a push or even a gentle but firm kick when required.

If you are considering becoming a VA or are established but need some help to take your business to the next level, then I highly recommend that you check out the courses that Amanda offers at VACT. You won`t regret it. She really is quite Awesome!”

Amanda is the “Go-To” for any aspiring Virtual Assistant. She is no-nonsense and will give a kick up the rear when it’s needed, but she is also an absolute gold mine of information and resources and I have never known her stumped or phased by any question I have thrown at her! Her VA Mastery course is, in my opinion, the best available and I would recommend to anyone considering a career as a VA, to start with Amanda’s course. Amanda has helped me immeasurably with my business growth and I continue to work with her as I start to reap the benefits of all of her great advice and knowledge. Thanks, Amanda.
