National Apprenticeship Service also found, since 2010, overall take up of apprenticeships has increased by 28% in the Vale.
The Aylesbury MP said: “I am delighted that Aylesbury is at the forefront of this national surge.
“Apprenticeships offer excellent opportunities for young people to equip themselves with new skills.
“Employers can apply for an apprenticeship grant to help cover costs of taking someone on and I hope even more employers will now consider doing so.”
