Companies are under no obligation whatsoever to "help" your nephew. A
company will hire someone if they can do the job, or take a risk if they
have potential and don't expect to be paid the going rate. Since your
nephew's grades are bad, the best he can do is to exchange what he can
currently do for a low wage and training, which probably will be as a
technician. Remember that he can train himself, but it's better for morale
and motivation if he can join a course or night-school. It's important that
he doesn't become fixated by the black-hole he may be peering into right
