Job seeking with Autism

hi my son struggled at school and ended up being home schooled. He eventually got a diagnosis of high functioning autism. Despite being very bright he left school with only 1 Gsce and would only go to the local college which specialized in construction courses of people that would not be able to attend their local college for what ever reason. Now that has finished I’m not sure what to do next for him. He wants to work but struggle s with anxiety. I thought about apprenticeships to help him to gain academic qualifications. Does anyone know of any companies that may be able to help him?
