The NDP is raising concern about layoffs at Saskatchewan Polytechnic.
Opposition leader Ryan Meili says 42 employees will be lost to buyouts and layoffs.
He blames provincial budget shortfalls.
Meili says the layoffs come at a time when more Saskatchewan people are looking for work and industries are struggling to find highly trained people.
Premier Scott Moe says the adjustments are not due to the provincial budget but to market conditions.
Advanced Education minister Tina Beaudry-Mellor says Sask Polytechnic is responsive to changing business demands and labor market requirements.
She pointed out indigenous enrollment has risen 53 percent in 10 years and 85 percent of indigenous graduates are employed.
