I am leaving my job in 6 weeks and my manager said I have to write a letter to resign. What do I write?

I am a care assistant and I am leaving to start a nursing diploma, I am happy enough with my job I just have to leave because the hours would clash...

Just write to say that you wish to inform them of your intention to resign from your employment on xxx date.

You can add other info if you wish, such as why you are leaving or, if you liked the job, to thank them or whatever for your time there.

I'd say something like "It is with regret that I must resign ...", put in stuff about how much you've enjoyed the job and that you're only doing it to follow your dream etc. You never know when you're going to need to approach them for a reference, or even a job in the future!

Good luck with your studies!

Write just what you've put here - it sounds fine.

Also. I am entitled to three days paid leave in the period of september-december. I plan to leave in early september, is it rude to ask for those three days before i leave? Maybe tagged onto my final week or something?

I could do with the money, and well I have worked my bum off and technically I am entitled to them...

You may find that you are not entitled to all of those holidays, as they will be done pro rata I suspect. You need to check that out.

I am, because its one week jan-april, two weeks april-august and one week sept=dec. I work three days so between September and December I can have 3 days, so if I was staying i could have like 1-3rd sept as annual leave if I wanted.

Sorry thats not clear! I work 3 days a week so instead of a week I am entitled to 3 days holiday in that time period.

In my resignation letter I added that "I wish "the Company" every success in the future".
