Your son has a good BTEC grade and a strong GCSE performance, and lots to offer qualitatively - he should be positive. I’d suggest a meeting with a careers adviser to look at what he enjoys.
Some BTEC diploma students in uniformed services find something like sociology/psychology/politics combined popular. Also consider logistics, paramedic studies, politics and international relations, sociology, social policy, police studies, peace studies etc.
We believe that there will be opportunities available and your son should be optimistic.
