UK-based VA training courses learn how to set up a successful VA business


Get support and inspiration from other great VA’s – my communities support each other in their set up


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 each person undertaking the training.

There are a lot of VA training and coaching courses out there, with so many of them being impersonal and fully automated courses.  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 courses, perhaps prepping you on the general tasks and skills that are required to become a VA.  Your questions go unanswered, you feel unsupported and you are left floundering.  Not good!

Well when you work with me – it’s the complete opposite, I am here with you inspiring, challenging you and supporting you to be an “Awesome” VA Business Owner.

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.
