    Is this possible?

    My current apprenticeship is at a Web Development company. I attend college 4 days every other week for the apprenticeship. The college course is absolutely nothing to do with Web Development, just networking and computer parts nonsense, although interesting I feel it is wasting my time. I have been working at the company for 6 months straight with no college until now.

    Is it possible to leave the apprenticeship, get pushed to minimum wage and continue working for my employer, if he agrees to do so?

    Yes, but you need to speak to the person running the apprenticeship and they need to decide whether they want to.

    Are they paying you apprentice wage, or are they paying you reasonably well?

    If they're paying you well, then inform them that the course isn't suitable, and that you feel you'd learn more just being in full time employment.
    If they're paying you apprentice wage, then it will make more sense for them to keep you at college as it's costing them less.
