BENDIGO TAFE's revitalisation works are progressing with parts of the new site now open to students.
Construction of the $60 million project started in February 2020 and is due to be completed later this year.
But the refurbished Building E at the city campus opened on Monday to commercial and hospitality students.
Students studying a Certificate III in Baking will be able to use the upgraded facilities for their training and course work.
Vocational Education and Training in School students studying a Certificate II in Kitchen Operations will also be using the new facilities in 2021.

There will also be a number of short programs available to students later in the year, including macaroon making and an introduction to artisan bread.
The new-look city campus, due to open in 2022, will include an Indigenous education centre, an Industry innovation centre, and rehabilitation gym.
The revitalisation project will also mean the Bendigo Technical Education Campus will move from St Andrews Avenue to the Bendigo City Campus.
The Bendigo Law Courts project also started at the same site late last year.
The long-awaited building will house the Magistrates' Court and the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal, as well as the County Court, Supreme Court, and Federal Circuit Court when sitting in Bendigo.
The new building will be constructed at the corner of Hargreaves and Mundy streets, where part of the TAFE campus currently lies.
