Online coding school for young kids, WhiteHat Jr will foray into non-English speaking countries of Brazil and Mexico as part of a worldwide expansion, launch maths classes and hire one lakh women teachers in next three years as it puts behind unsavoury events to refocus on core philosophy and growth.

In an interview to PTI , WhiteHat Jr Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Karan Bajaj said the barely two-year old online education platform has seen tremendous success in India, the US, the UK, New Zealand and Australia with about 1.5 lakh paid students taking some 40,000 classes everyday from 11,000 teachers.

"We are launching maths classes next month," he said, adding the company will use a one-on-one teaching model and go on to create 1,00,000 teaching jobs, all for women, in India in the next three years.

The teachers, from the comfort of their homes and flexi timing, earn equivalent to entry-level salaries of IIT and IIM graduates, he said adding super qualified women who were not fully employed, will be utilised. The individualised teacher education has brought great success for the company with 70 per cent of the 1.5 lakh paid students in India and the remaining coming from countries such as the US, Australia and New Zealand.

Besides, kids are joining from other nations like Sweden, Norway and Ethiopia organically. "We are now starting tests in Brazil and Mexico with local teachers and local students," he said adding the company will build its international presence in a measured way depending on cash flows.
