For 1 year or less - 1 weeks notice is sufficient...

Write a resignation letter

Once you know how much notice you have to give you can put your resignation in writing. Some tips for writing it include:

Keep it short
Stick to the point
Use formal language
Be nice about it

Your resignation letter should include:

A statement that clearly says you're going to resign
The date of your last day of work (based on the notice you're giving)
A short explanation of why you are leaving
A short, polite thank you at the end of the letter

Other things your resignation letter could include are:

Something positive about your experience in the job (for example, the chance to gain experience or develop skills)
An offer to help make things easier for the organisation (for example, helping train other staff before you finish)

When writing the letter it's important to:

Make sure you get the dates right
Keep a copy so you have proof you submitted it and proof of your last day

Hope this helps!

I started working 22nd December last year that means I'm only in the centre for 10 months. I am located in NSW. Does all the center has the same notice for employers? So that means im less than one year. My notice will be 1 week notice is sufficient right?

because i cant manage to find the enterprise agreement from my center. But I do want to have my entilement of annual leave paid to me. So i want to be sure its definitely 1 week notice if I only worked for 10 months with the company is that right?

Thanks,

Yes, you're right... The resignation notice is from Fair Work Australia so this is the same for anyone resigning from any job throughout Australia:

Hi Lorina,

I have given a notice to my leader given one week notice. Does that mean I will get my annual leave paid to me after I left even if I only been in centre for 10month? Should I also send a copy of my letter to HR as well or I don't need to my leader should sort it out?

Any annual paid leave you are owed will given to you in your final pay and yes you should send a copy of the letter to HR as well...
