"Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor - social determinants of outcomes for children and young people" an Inaugural Professorial Lecture, by Professor Kaz Stuart, Director of the Centre of Research in Health and Society, University of Cumbria.
The counting game ‘tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor’ suggests to children that their future destiny is down to chance. But is this really the case?
This lecture will explore some of the well-known and lesser known determinants of outcomes for children and young people and the relationships between them.
Examples of innovative practice will be used to illustrate ways to achieve alternative outcomes.
Ten simple attitudinal changes that have potential for profound societal change will be outlined as challenges for the audience to achieve.
"Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor, rich man, poor man, beggar man, thief
Silk, satin, muslin, rags,
Coach, carriage, wheelbarrow, cart,
Big house, little house, pigsty, barn
This year, next year, three years, never" (Anon)
