My son do not want to go further in study as he does not want to end up having a job like me

My son turns 16 today and he said he was considering leaving school which I wasn’t exactly happy about but here’s his reasons, he’s not enjoying school anymore as he’s bored, not challenged and the older he gets the less engaging some of the teachers are. He doesn’t want to go to College or Uni as he would rather work instead of getting into student debt that he would spend years paying off. I asked him what he wants to do and he said that he would like to learn a trade as he doesn’t want to end up like myself working in a bank or large corporation getting worried in case my job gets outsourced so I said I would support him but he can’t leave school unless he finds an apprenticeship in Joinery, Plumbing,Electrician etc. At 16 they think they know everything but listening to him he does have a point and learning a trade can lead to a successful career so I’m going to help my son find an apprenticeship.
