The Background section of the application form is used to clarify "Who are you as an organisation?". 

If you are applying on behalf of a larger organisation with multiple departments or sections, or as a consortium, it is important that you clearly describe the structure of the entire organisation and explain which parts of the organisation are working in the field covered by this application. The field of the application is displayed in the Context section of your application form. It can be Adult education, Vocational education and training, or School education.
