Welcome to VA Training Academy®, my training hub that gives you all you need to create, grow and scale an awesome Virtual Assistant Business.
Here we you’ll be offered the solutions you need for the problems you face, no matter what stage of the VA journey you are at, we have something that will help you progress and I cannot wait for you to get started.
So quick question before we start…
Are you looking to become the “go-to” Virtual Assistant while having a VA business that will give you…
To have greater flexibility so that your health, wellbeing, work and family life are all in alignment.
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”.
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!”
