British School of Nardo is just another example of a small and desperate school which is trying to exploit teachers from UK and discard them with no respect at all. The director, Mauro, is a most appalling and disgusting man who has threatened physical violence to some teachers in his office. His behavior is so disgusting that nobody will even work for him in his school office. So, he must use his own family to work in his school. He has an incompetent ageing wife and silly daughter who help him, as he can't get other people to work in his school. It is typical to find some schools in the south of Italy to be operated and managed in an unorthodox way, and often these schools can behave quite inappropriately with their own special set of rules. British School of Nardo is an extreme example of this, especially as the director is a cold mannered and deceiving person. In fact, the school even has a UK firm to manage the legal and accounting aspects. They are called Barnbrook Sinclair and they are actually the employer for the teachers. Contracts are managed by Barnbrook Sinclair and they are the employer who are responsible for the teachers well-being at the school. This system is in place because of the issues and problems that teachers can have when directors can be pathetic, mean and just horrible to work for. So the UK firm acts as an agency to support teachers and make sure they get paid. It is a real shame when a school has to be run by such cold mannered people. British School of Nardo does not represent what a normal working environment should be and an external firm has to step in and deal with unpaid wages and even compensation for the unprofessional behaviour of the director. It is a shame, but there are schools which exploit and abuse teachers.
