What you need is an experienced matchmaker who can show you the ropes. Which is pretty handy because there’s one right here….

I’m here to help you become a successful matchmaker by giving you the tools and knowledge needed, as well as sharing tons of real life matchmaking experience with you.

I started out as a matchmaker in London in 2011. I had an idea of what I wanted to do but was completely clueless on how to go about it. Sound familiar?

Who would have guessed just 5 years later I would be awarded the UK Matchmaker of the Year and Worldwide Best Matchmaker Award. I’ve arranged more dates than I’ve had hot dinners (and I like to eat!) and I’ve celebrated many happy marriages, babies and loved up couples.

Starting out I did things back to front, inside out, spent money on things that weren’t important and spent way too much time trying to figure it all out.

I created this course so you won’t have to go through that.

I help my clients find love and now I’m going to help you do the same. It’s time to get excited for your new chapter!

so-what-exactly

The Academy Online (for short) is a self-study training program that shows you step-by-step how to launch a matchmaking business and have a whole heap of fun on the way…because what’s not to love about helping bring people together?

howdoes

The entire training program is available the moment you complete your registration. Which means you can work at your own pace and gain your matchmaker certification in a way that fits into your schedule. The materials are yours to keep so you can listen, watch and review them as much as you like, for as long as you like.

When I came across the Matchmaker Academy I thought 'eureka' a matchmaker school actually exists! It was my calling and the best decision I made. Project 143 is going from strength to strength and I’m now a full time matchmaker. I couldn't have done it so quickly without the Academy.

You struggle to work independently. This is a self study course so whilst you’ll get support from the private Facebook Community and 2 sessions with Caroline, you’ll be working through the program independently at your own pace

Matchmaking isn’t something you’re serious about. We want our graduates and certified matchmakers to be passionate, driven and ready to challenge the status quo. We want matchmakers who are going to thrive and give it there all.

I had such a brilliant time training with the Academy, I was truly inspired by all the amazing talented people. I’m already working with amazing clients and loving every moment.

faq

Absolutely, this course is ideal for beginners or those with some experience who are looking to improve. Many of our graduates completed training with us without any prior experience of matchmaking and have gone on to become successful matchmakers.

So long as that dream is about being a matchmaker then sure thing! This course will guide you step by step through the matchmaking process so an idea and a dream is all you need – and a healthy dose of ‘get up and go’ and determination.

Like matchmaking, there are no guarantees. You can never promise a client you’ll find them love, and we can’t promise that you’ll be a hot shot matchmaker making millions after taking this course. But we’re firm believers in the saying ‘what you put in is what you'll get out’.

No. The beauty of an online course is you can do it from anywhere in the world so long as you have Internet connection. This course translates to wherever in the world you are planning to be a matchmaker.

There are several tasks throughout the course we ask you to complete and submit – don’t worry we’re not going to pull out a red pen and mark you! It’s simply so we can ensure you’re on the right track and support you. Our matchmakers are proud to be certified and you will be too.

Once you have paid and have a username and password the entire course is available to you, because of that we’re unable to offer refunds.

This training course is online and it’s ready and waiting right now, you can start today!

The course provided a wonderful insight into the world of matchmaking freely shared by experts. The guidance and support given has been amazing and Soiree Society NI is going from strength to strength.

Working with Caroline was really great and inspiring. She is a great mentor, supportive and generous and a really lovely and warm person. She understands students needs and she adjust perfectly to them. She taught me essential skills, gave me the right tools and prepared me for all difficulties, to start my own Matchmaking agency in Slovenia. I really enjoyed working with her.

I really enjoyed the training and am in the process of launching a matchmaking service and can’t wait to get stuck in. A highlight for me was attending the Dating awards with fellow graduates.
