The term refers to a sexual or otherwise inappropriate relationship between an adult who is responsible for young people and a young person in his or her care. The Act's provisions mean that, subject to a number of limited defences, it will be a criminal offence for a person in a position of trust in a school to engage in any sexual activity with a person aged under 18 with whom a relationship of trust exists, irrespective of the age of consent, even if the basis for their relationship is consensual. more
