One reason why the NFTE curriculum creates lasting impact is because our students get access to practical tools and gain knowledge of up-to-the-minute skills through our partnerships with industry leaders such as Intuit. NFTE has integrated Intuit’s Design for Delight (D4D) design thinking methodology in many of our programs. D4D teaches our students three key principles: Deep Customer Empathy, Go Broad to Go Narrow (brainstorming), and Rapid Experiments with Customers (prototyping).

Not only do our students benefit, our staff does, too! Congratulations to NFTE staff Danice Ferguson, Daniel Williams, and Anthony Curtis for completing the #D4D instructor training and receiving Design for Delight Innovator certification! We’re grateful for our ongoing partnership with Intuit to prepare our students, educators, and staff for the workplace of today.
