There is nothing wrong with quitting a job with adequate notice. Submit a resignation letter with your last day listed ( give 2weeks notice at least) and sit and talk with your boss about it. People do this all the time and if done with the correct level of respect, you will be a re-hire later with no issues!

@Benten24:  Write a nice business letter thanking them for the opportunity to work for them and hoping that you can again work with them in the future.  But be clear that you are a bit overwhelmed with working and going to school so you are putting in your two weeks notice so that you can focus on school.  End the letter with the desire to return to work for them in a different capacity once you have your degree/training complete.  Then schedule a meeting with your supervisor (or hiring manager if they are different) to turn in your resignation.  I think you will be fine just be really positive about your experience with them and focus on the fact you are leaving to study and not to take another job (make sure you don’t take another job for at least a semester or two so they don’t think you were lying.)  Good luck!

@Benten24:  You write a resignation letter, and briefly explain the situation. Also, maybe you could consider taking a part time position with them, or working during breaks (if you get them.. not sure if you are going to school year round).

I would write a letter of resignation and expect that they won’t need/want you for the two week notice period.

@Benten24:  Write a resignation letter giving 2 weeks notice (or whatever you are required to give by contract).  Go and talk to your boss in person and give him this letter.  Let him know that you would imagine that he wouldn’t want to continue training you for the next two weeks so you’re willing to either 1) make your end date earlier, based on the company’s convenience, or 2) do other work for the duration of your notice period.

Explain to them thruthfully why you are leaving, appologize for taking up their time in training, and state explicitly that you hope that you are leaving on good terms.
