We recently ran the first of our VA Taster Days in Surrey & Sussex and were delighted with the response from the many aspiring VAs that came along to the sessions.
At Get Ahead VA we have joined forces with other well-known VAs to roll out VA training across the nation, creating exceptional VAs through delivering the CPD accredited VA Coaching & Training Company (VACT) VA Mastery Programme. The Surrey course took place in Guildford on 23rd October and the Sussex course took place in Crawley on 6th November.
Aimed at experienced PAs, administrators or secretaries and people looking for a more flexible role or wanting to work in their retirement, the interactive half day sessions enabled those attending to learn if the fast growing VA industry was for them and gave them full insight into what to consider and which tools they would need to build the first level foundation of their VA business. With the right tools and techniques, VACT can make sure you make the transition to becoming a VA effectively and successfully.
Feedback from the events was fantastic with attendees giving comments such as “Thanks so much for this morning, I arrived not knowing where to go, how to do it & even if I could do it! But, came out feeling really inspired!" Polly from Kent. The atmosphere in both sessions was really positive with everyone working together to consider how they could drive their careers forwards.
Following on from the taster days, some of the candidates were keen to enrol on the full CPD Accredited VA Mastery course and we are looking forward to working with them on their journey to becoming successful VAs. Our next taster days will be held on 4th Dec in London, 15th January in Guildford and 22nd January in Brighton.
