    I have a summer job offer from a company called Education First who provide english language training for people across the world. Yesterday i was so excited and ready to receive an offer. However now i'm starting to worry about things such as :

    I have to gain a TEFL qualification before i can begin the job, the company have provided me with a discounted course however i'm worried i will not be able to complete the course before June (my start date) as I'm currently finishing off my Geography degree and will be untill middle of may.

    I am also worried that i'll begin the job and decide i do not wish to continue working with them for the summer, if this happens i will then have to pay Education First £304 for the discounted course which education first contributed to.

    Lastly they have not told me where in the UK I'll be based and won't do so untill i've confirmed the job offer. This panics me as i suppose i feel I'm going into the unknown.

    I guess i'm just looking for advice about whether i should accept and if i'm making a mountain out of a mole hill . Anyone had any experience with them?
