Start your VA business with our 8 week mentoring programme for ambitious new VAs!
Our Kick Starters is a mentoring programme for new VAs, designed to support and guide you through those nervous and tricky early stages of your business journey, from registering as a sole trader to getting your first client.
Kick Starters has been amazing for me. I have been looking to get back into work since having my son but wanted something flexible and to work for myself. Kick Starters has now guided me through setting up as a VA business, I feel confident knowing I have the right knowledge and right systems in place to provide excellent support to clients and now have more of an idea of who I want to be working with.
The tips every day have always helped motivate me and the Zoom room drop in sessions have been invaluable. The community inside Kick Starters is fantastic as we are all in the same position and everyone is there to help each other.Thanks to the knowledge I've been given from Kick Starters I have now landed my first client and am looking forward to building up my business!
APVA graduates earn at least £2,000 more than any other UK training course and at least £6,000 more than VAs with no training.

Are you looking to get started with your own VA business but LITERALLY have no idea where to start?
Perhaps you are overwhelmed with all the information out there?
Or confused as to which 'expert' to learn from?
Sometimes, if can be that you are ready to get started, but you just don't have the funds to invest in a VA course right now...
Well, the really great news is that you don't have to.
It is possible to gain access to experienced, accredited support to help you get your VA business off the ground...and it doesn't have to cost ££s!
Our APVA Kick Starters 8 week programme gives you JUST this.
Access to your own mastermind of people in the SAME boat, and guidance from our expert trainer to hold your hand along the way.
Over 8 weeks, we'll cover off the essential must-have things you need to think about before and during starting your business, and help you map out what the next steps are for you and your new venture.
We'll even give you some AMAZING bonuses (shhhh, you have to stay til the end...) and a unique discount off our industry-leading courses and membership if and when these are right for you.
When I joined APVA KickStarters the only thing I knew was that I wanted to be a VA. I was all over the place and didn't know where to start. Today and after almost 6 weeks I can say I know exactly what to do.
The support has been absolutely amazing. There's no such thing as stupid questions, all questions are valid...just love it.
Will easily recommend the Association to anyone that needs support on becoming a VA. Can't thank you enough for all your support!
When I joined the APVA kickstarter group I was petrified and felt overwhelmed about setting up my business!
However, in JUST five weeks with its ongoing support together with a huge source of information from the APVA the group has helped me overcome my fears and given me the confidence to push forward with my launch. It’s scary but sooo exciting!
Thank you Charlotte, Holly and the wonderful group of newbie VA’s for all your support!

When I first joined Kick Starters I was at the stage of searching for clients.
My mentor has been amazing with answering any questions I have had, especially when imposter syndrome has set in, which has been so valuable to my confidence.
I would highly recommend joining Kick Starters, the group is so friendly & supportive!
Got questions about joining Kick Starters? We’ll answer them!
I want to sign up, but I can’t pay in full – are there other options?
We understand that the course, although essential for your business success, is an investment. Therefore we have included an option to pay via 2 instalments if you don’t have the funds to pay in full at the start.
If I sign up for the mentoring, can I defer starting?
The mentoring programme works best when a group comes together to support each other through the same progress journey – with this in mind we would encourage you to sign up only when you are ready to start.
What happens at the end of the mentoring programme?
At the end of the programme, when you are ready, you will be able to progress to full APVA membership and accreditation at a discounted rate, which is what the vast majority of our mentees do. If you decide not to, you will still have access to your Kick Starters training and can continue to receive support via The VA Hub.
Can I share Kick Starters with my friends?
We would love you to share with as many people as possible! The best way to share is to sign up as an affiliate so you can earn a commission off their sign up too.
How much time do I need to dedicate to this?
The mentoring programme is based in Simplero and on Facebook and designed to fit around your current work/life commitments. Obviously you get out what you put in, so we would recommend you make the effort to join as many live sessions as possible and work through the modules each week so that you can complete this in 8 weeks.
How long am I tied in for?
As this programme is a fixed price, you are not tied in. If you feel this isn’t for you, we do have a 7 day cooling-off period and you can cancel during that time.
After completing Kick Starters you will have the option to progress to APVA membership and accreditation.
