Young people from Cumnock and Doon Valley are being urged to apply to a new scheme that will boost their chances of landing a job.

The Princes Trust programme will be launched next month and includes a variety of skills training such as teambuilding, workshops, CV and interviews skills as well as a work placement.

The 12-week programme starts on June 3 and will aim to help locals bag employment and secure jobs.
