Virtual Assistant Training
You want to create a life that gives you the balance you crave between family, career and personal growth
You want to build your authentic VA business supported by a team of existing high performing VAs.
Let’s make your Virtual Assistant business dreams a reality!
“If you don’t build your dream, someone else will hire you to create theirs”
The VIP VA Nurture programme will give you everything you need to set up a successful VA business and structure it for success.
The VIP VA Nurture programme goes much deeper than any other online Virtual Assistant Training courses (and let’s be clear there are lots out there!). When you train to run your online business with VIP VA, you have confidence that you are training with an organisation whose mission is the same as yours.
In fact, you’ll love that you’re training with the organisation that raises VA industry standards and champions VA businesses as credible, knowledgeable & professional business partners to your clients and UK businesses.
I was fortunate enough to win a place on the VIP VA Nurture Programme after entering a competition at The Office Show 2018. As my business was (and still is) in its infancy, this was a tremendous bonus! I get 1:1 Skype meetings with my ‘buddy’ Nicola Slade – who’s fab, Q&A sessions, plus encouraging emails (with virtual hugs), the Masterclass and monthly packs full of materials and resources. It’s has been such a help when starting out, I can only thoroughly recommend both VIP VA and the Nurture Programme.Nicola Workman
I started some life coaching a few months back to look at what I wanted to do with my time now that my kids were at school.
I was very keen on becoming a VA and using some of my past career skills.
I was put in touch with a lovely VA who recommended VIP VA as I wanted to find a suitable course to get me on the right path.
The course is very well structured, you can do it at your own pace and Charlotte and her team have been so supportive and positive.
The facebook community is incredibly helpful too and a great source for any stumbling blocks or areas where you may need further help.
I would definitely recommend the course and VIP VA to anyone thinking of becoming a VA.Sonya Cook
So what is covered in the online VA Nurture Training?
When discover these things you’ll never struggle to motivate yourself again. You’ll love your work and understand what truly makes you tick.
The employee mindset will limit your potential. Your client is not the boss – you are. In module 2 you’ll crush the employee and release the inner CEO of your business.
Of course, everyone needs your VA services, but the best VAs know that when they’re more specific they’ll earn more and be more profitable. Not only that, they’ll do more of the work that they love so it doesn’t seem like work at all! Many graduates of our VA training program say that this module alone is worth the investment.
When you package your services correctly you’ll find that your clients respect your boundaries and you’ll love that they know your worth. The last thing you want is clients that drain you. This module shows you how to own your value.
You’re not just a VA, you’re a business owner. Systems enable you to work smartly, productively and happily. From time tracking to task management, at the end of this module, you’ll know what systems you need to use to launch your VA business.
Many VAs miss this aspect or find that their alternative VA training options don’t give the most up to date information or even the correct information for the countries they’re working in! Don’t let this be you.
Lots of VAs love this module as it shares how they can successfully increase their visibility online.
No man is an island, and collaboration is one of the most exciting ways to launch your VA Business.
Life gets tough at times, in this module, we’ll equip you, so you can deal with the difficult situations and still thrive. You’ll love the self-care strategies that help you be happier and confident in your VA business.
Then you’ll put together your action plan and start your business success journey.

If you're wanting to go from a PA/EA position to become a VA where you want to continue to deliver a high standard and quality service then this is the right course for you. It will lead you down the route to becoming a business owner and not only thinking about getting work but what your long term goals are, why you are doing this and ensuring that you get the right balance for you working with the clients that you want to work with. This course exactly met what I wanted to achieve.
I had already started my VA business but I wanted to fill in a few gaps and needed the confidence boost this course gave me. I've already recommended to a couple of PAs looking to make the leap!Natalie Reeves
After considering the transition from EA to VA it was a chance meeting with Charlotte at an EPAA event that led me to her as a trainer over any other! Her style of training has really suited me. The dread of having so much to learn has been daunting - her humour and honesty within the masterclass has made the journey feel achievable.
If you are thinking of setting up a VA business, don't hesitate to book onto the training - this really is the best training I have done in a long time (not just as a potential VA!) and it is clear that Charlotte has thought about everything we would need to think about in order to be a successful VA! Thank you Charlotte!
I would also recommend 1:1 coaching to further support the learning if owning/running a business is completely new to you or if you are lacking in confidence.Claire Grace, FEPAA
I have recently completed the awesome Nurture Programme with Charlotte at VIP VA.
I can whole heartedly recommend this course to anyone considering the transition from PA to VA.
The content is concise and engaging and Charlotte is very responsive to any enquiries you may have.
You will feel fully supported and ultimately ready for your next entrepreneurship challenge.Jennifer Corcoran, FEPAA
I am currently in the middle of the Nurture Programme with Charlotte & VIP VA.
I really can’t believe after the awfulness of being made redundant and trying to figure out what to do next that I am already where I am now – the support you get from this group is just amazing and I could not have done it without the Facebook group and all the resources you share.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
My business has been full on and I have spent the last few months working really hard in the business but not nearly enough time working on the business. So I had found myself in a a bit of a stalemate and needed an input of time, energy and enthusiasm to take me to the next level.
My day with Charlotte (and the pre and post work) have been vital in giving me back my spark. My energy levels have increased because I am making time to do parts of the job that I enjoy as well as those that need doing. I now have a plan of action and goals to work to, I feel like I have direction again!
As an added bonus the day itself was relaxed and great fun. The venue was lovely and the working space really good.
Whether you are starting out or at a bit of a changing point, I’d definitely recommend a day with Charlotte.Kathy Soulsby
I was recommended, by a former colleague, to look at the VIP VA Hub and from there decided to join the VIP VA Nuture Programme. The modules cover such topics as how tounderstand your vision and find your ‘niche’, how to actually set up a business, give advice about networking and relationships and above all, how to be confident and believe in yourself. And the great thing is that all of the videos, tutorials, templates and other training material is yours to keep, forever!
Prior to joining the group, I really had little idea of how to go about setting up my own business – I knew I could do it but wasn’t really sure of how to do it. Charlotte is so good at listening, giving advice, praising and is never too busy to help you out whenever she can.
Since signing up for the course, I’ve attended EleVAte 2017, several networking sessions, Office 2018 and secured acquaintances with lots of other great VA’s, also members of the VIP VA Members Club & Nurture Programme, all of whom are so willing to help and give advice whenever you need it.
I’ve also found my ‘niche’ and am moving forward with setting up working primarily as a bookkeeper, which I’m absolutely loving!
So, thank you, Charlotte and all the VIP VA team, for your patience, advice, kindness and help in getting me up and running and giving me the confidence to ‘go do it’! Andrea Williams
