The Natk4all program is a well appreciated set of physics courses for engineers preparing for physics teaching. The blended learning format suits the students who combine a teaching job and teacher training program. The setup and execution of the Natk4all program has received continuous support from all universities involved. As a by-product intake procedures for new physics teachers were synchronised. The conceptual approach aimed for was implemented by the teachers embedding this within a foundation approach covering the content and procedures of relevant physics subdomains at an academic level well above the secondary school exam level.
