No, I don't have something specific in mind. Yes, they generally have a Year 10 minimum here too (I'm in Australia). I just thought it might be worth a shot. Something with on-the-job training?

Find him a trade. Clearly, his path in life is not going to be academic. That is not the end of the world. What are his interests? Can he find an apprenticeship or traineeship in a career that would interest him?
