Remote Work Capacity Building Programs 

 At Pointer Remote we are passionate about supporting communities, businesses and individuals to leverage remote work to thrive. Our Remote Work Capacity Building Programs upskill participants by connecting them with specialist training and resources, practical workshops and e-Learning and creating a community of like minded thinkers. These Programs can be delivered as a combination of in person and virtual or entirely online, so that communities, businesses and individuals from anywhere in Australia can participate.

​Program Options

There are three options for the roll out of Capacity Building Programs in your community or organisation. Options include; the Pointer Remote team running in person events in your town or workplace; a facilitated virtual program with a number of weekly live sessions; or providing access to our self-paced programs for community members or employees to participate.

In Person

The Pointer Remote team comes to your community or business to run the first module of the Program in person. Participants complete the remainder of the Program virtually with a cohort specific Facilitator with live 'Ask Me Anything' sessions with topic specialists.* 


Our Remote Work Capacity Program is hosted online with a cohort specific Pointer Remote Facilitator. The Program modules are rolled out weekly with live sessions with the Facilitator (all recorded to view later) and weekly live 'Ask Me Anything' sessions with topic specialists.


Participants complete the online modules of the Remote Work Capacity Building Program at their own pace. The entire Program can be accessed at anytime and modules can be completed in the prefered order of the participant.

*The In Person Capacity Building Program includes a 'Remote Ready Community Forum', an additional program held in your community to focus on economic development strategies that relate to remote work. We explain Pointer Remote's 'Remote Ready Framework' and work with key community stakeholders to assist in strategy and infrastructure planning to leverage remote work to attract and retain population.

"Supporting communities to become ‘Remote Ready’ creates an environment that is conducive to remote work, not only for local residents but for those looking to relocate, bringing with them a remote job. Corporates or large organisations from interstate or internationally can use ‘Remote Ready’ communities as hiring ‘hubs’. The organisations can hire groups of people within a commutable distance of a ‘Remote Ready’ community so that employees can create a network of teammates as well as creating opportunities for training to be held in the regions rather than in metro cities, with the flow on effect of local spend seen directly."

​Specialist Presenters

Each module in the Capacity Building Programs focuses on a specific topic area and includes video and written content as well as pre and post work, that has been developed by specialists in each topic area. The content is hands on, current and developed by industry leaders to ensure participants are building capacity in their ability to work and/or manage remotely.

​Program Modules Overview

Each module covers a different topic area and is delivered by a different specialist in the field. The content is delivered in video and writing format with exercises and activities. If the Program you are completing is 'In Person' or ' Facilitated' (see Program Options), your content is made available on Mondays each week and includes live sessions with your Facilitator and the topic expert. All sessions are recorded and you can interact with the content when best suits you. If you are completing a 'Self-paced' Program (see Program Options), your content is made available immediately and you can work through the modules at your own pace and in the order that you wish.
