This post has been moderated UJ

The NAME REMOVED in Italy have run for some time. They did have excellent reputation, but one of their branches is terrible and should be avoided. I am referring to NAME REMOVED (near Naples). It is a small school which has falsely advertised for TEFL teachers, offering them support which does not even exist. It is one of the worst schools in Naples. The school has very limited resources and not enough books for teachers. There is no teacher resource room and no computers for teachers to use. There is just a Wi-Fi connection which is not even stable. Teachers have to use an empty classroom as a place to prepare lessons and often get moved around or told to leave unless they have a lesson. The receptionist, NAME REMOVED, is really sweet and nice. But she is forced to take care of many things, and without enough energy so she is rather pathetic. The poor girl is over-worked to do reception, admin, be a course manager and more. So she can get hard up and bitter. NAME REMOVED has a low number of staff and they do not look after their teachers well.

This school is a family run school, but managed with lack of resources and lack of professionalism. This is because the ageing owner, NAME REMOVED has brought in her clueless daughter into the business as an assistant director. Her name is NAME REMOVED and she is a rude and cold mannered person. She does not give enough resources to Teachers and forces them to share with each other. She occasionally gets very stressed up and uses offensive language and is a bit difficult to approach for help and support. A good thing is that you are given accommodation at this school. It is advertised in the job advert as being cheap and modern, really great.... but actually it is not modern and quite basic. There is no central heating and you will share with other teachers, paying 400 Euros. There is a senior teacher at the school who lives at the flat. He is a guy called NAME REMOVED and he can be quite rude and offensive, taking over most of the kitchen space with his own stuff and pushing your things out of the way.

So, to sum up, this is a small school with a serious lack of resources and rude staff. No computers for teachers, no direct access to printing, no dedicated room for teachers to prepare classes, not enough books and resources for teachers. NAME REMOVED is an unfriendly school, where teaching staff have little chance for socializing. Naples is generally a grimy, gritty place with poor conditions and scammers, thieves and rubbish in the streets. This school is in an urban industrial area of Naples with dirty streets and hardly nothing nice to see. It is a very lonely and depressing place to work. Social life is very limited unless you find real and genuine friends.
