    Army? Could pick up a trade while he's in, and if he's switched on and hard working he'll do well. I'd suggest a trade in the navy or RAF, but not sure if he'd need some decent GCSE's to get into them.
    I firmly believe that 16 & 18 is just too young for some lads to apply themselves to study. We all mature at different rates and just like some people ride a bike at two and others at eight, the academic thing clicks later for others.

    The title of this thread made me chuckle. What a lovely descripton.

    Any factory work where he lives?

    I used to work in composites (making wind turbines).

    Wasn't for me paid ok tho. £23K per year and training was given on the job. Some of the tickest people I have ever met still work in that factory.

    This post has been criminally overlooked.

    Very well done.

    Has he any interest in IT?

    It will take qualifications so might not be the best idea but if it's a case of not performing in a school environment and if he would study when he's alone and it's something he's interested in, I'd heavily suggest IT and security specifically.

    IT security professionals are going to be paid a shitload in future, if they're not already.

    A lad who has autism helps us out sometimes at work, I've never seen such dedication in a lad to tasks he's given, I know that is part of his condition, and they get fixated on certain things /hobbies, but in certain areas he pisses all over us with his knowledge about things and attention to detail. The film the accountant is an excellent example of autism. I'm sure something will come his way mate, good luck :)

    Military service isn't a bad choice. RAF as a driver maybe? Have a look in the RAF Careers website.
