A bunch of go-getters, the 'techies' constantly work against deadlines, innovating and ideating to bring out the best solutions.

Consulting
Consulting is the heart of our business domain .The consulting team is the face of IYCWorld for our member schools, and therefore a lot of stress goes into the grooming of this team, not just in the technological aspects of the products but in communication skills as well. They are groomed in logical reasoning, leadership qualities, interpersonal communication skills, and ability to work with others.

They collaborate with school team to take up issues challenging school’s business, delve deeper to solve these challenges. Consultants have deep understanding of the complex problems (faced by the schools) from diverse perspectives.

Research & Development
The R&D is a small, dedicated team of specialists in various aspects of E-education, with the responsibility of understanding and creating what every member school wants, but is as yet not a part of our Products. This team stays away from daily operations and concentrates solely on researching specific issues and developing modules to address them.

The R&D team helps us in addressing the future anticipated needs of the schools with appropriate products and services

Schools
An emerging area of action (and political activism) to seek policy changes and reform in the school education sector; seeking a far greater liberalisation/innovation on the 'input side' of education and far tighter control on the output side. Galvanising education and support to parents on the historically critical role of quality of parenting for success in school.

Harnessing the leading edge research in English language and math education and innovative overall development resources as well as appropriate multi-platform technology solutions are leading us to prod in two directions: a. Liberal schools - schools for the children well educated families (III+ generation learners) b. Community schools - highest quality schools at affordable costs, typically riding over the government school structure. The two schools will be different in primary years, somewhat overlapping in middle years and similar in the secondary years and ahead.
