An industry professional in Guernsey is campaigning against funding cuts to a construction apprenticeship scheme.
Former Head of Construction at the College of Further Education, Denis Riddell, says he feels concerned and disappointed at the recent changes to the States' apprenticeship scheme.
The review of the scheme, which has run for two years, has shown additional industries would benefit from apprenticeships to develop their future workforce, including retail.
But Mr Riddell, now a manager at J.W. Rihoy & Son Ltd, says the extension of the apprenticeship scheme to other trades has negatively impacted the construction industry.
Mr Riddell says there has been no consultation process and no communication from the College of Further Education, who provide the apprenticeship schemes.
He says that ultimately the results of the review will mean a skills shortage in Guernsey.
