Beginning in the 1990s, Tina Jesson first came up with the idea of applying simple design techniques to help update her property to sell on a very tight budget when she was trying to sell her own home.
It was so successful, she then ran her own part time home re-styling business to test the home selling market for professional home staging.
She then got together with her good friend and colleague Jillian Hinds-Williams. On a part time basis they continued to develop the idea, and then came the business plan, and then the training plan, and by 2001 they had formed a national franchise network of independent home stagers throughout the UK.
Initially the training programme was a trade secret used to train their elite team of independent consultants in home staging techniques, quality standards and how to grow and develop a home staging business. Their British based Home Staging business grew to become the first nationwide professional home staging business in Europe, with over 26 licensed consultants, a number one ranking website and well developed PR strategy which made Home Stagers the industry leader throughout Europe.
The training package became the first nationally accredited professional home staging training programme in the UK. All courses underwent rigorous testing and evaluation through the British National Open College Network, which ensures training has undergone a robust quality assurance process to receive endorsement from this leading Awarding Organisation.
In response to the growing international interest in home staging, the British Academy of Home Stagers was established and the first overseas delegates from Australia, South Africa, America and Finland were trained alongside our elite UK consultants in the luxurious grounds of a Victorian mansion house in the Derbyshire Peak District.
The British Academy of Home Stagers achieved worldwide success for its business focused training approach, especially designed for individuals seeking to establish a successful property staging business.
As a result more delegates from around the world requested more regular and easier access to the training material, without having to travel to a classroom based course (no matter how luxurious).
After considerable thought it was decided to make the training programme more accessible by redveloping the material for a wholly online audience.
Thus the unique and comprehensive Professional Home Staging training package was developed.
The strategy was to provide students with the very latest learning platform, which can be accessed from anywhere, using mutliple media tools from PCs and laptops to tablets and phones.
The final step was rebranding to the Home Staging Academy to make it more accessible to home stagers worldwide.
The wholly online Home Staging Academy gives you a thorough grounding in Professional Home Staging, and is accessible to you wherever and whenever you are in the world at any time of day or night.
The modular courses can be completed when YOU have the time to focus, whether you want to fast track in 6 days, take 6 weeks, or take more than 6 months.
You set your own pace.
All courses are accessible from any device, from PC, Laptop, tablets and phones.
