The Richmond Business School was opened in January 2003. The building features state of the art IT facilities, language laboratories and conference and seminar rooms. It also incorporates the Business Training Services division which specialises in supplying flexible training to businesses on or off site. On the ground floor of the Business School there is a flexible learning IT suite, library and Learndirect area. In early 2005, work is being carried out to expand the roof area which will increase the facilities available for students. The Business School is an inherent part of the College’s status as a Centre of Vocational Excellence in Business and IT and specialist teaching is carried out in these curriculum areas.
