The new centre and refurbished space with its teaching and IT facilities is host to health and social care and hair and beauty in their new salons, foundation studies, computing, and uniformed and public services courses.
There are also new facilities for teaching English, maths and ESOL (English for speakers of other languages).
The new main atrium entrance and reception area, teamed with the expansion of the restaurant, social areas and learning resource centre, has already become a hub for students and staff alike.
The new building complements the £7.2m technology centre, which opened in April 2013.

Meanwhile, Wisbech Grammar School's newly built £2m refectory is now officially open. The refectory is named Skelton Hall in honour of Robert Skelton, who served as governor at the school for 15 years.
Headmaster Chris Staley said: 'Bob arranged for pupils to attend Magdalene College each year for taster days to introduce them to life and study at a Cambridge college.
'Skelton Hall has quickly become the heart of the school and a focal point where parents, pupils and staff come together.'
