Yes, that is an appropriate weaning protocol for Prednisolone. Typically the goal is to decrease the frequency of the dosing down to every other day for a period of time (in your case 33 days) until symptoms are resolved and then discontinue it. It is not necessary to decrease the volume of the dose as well.
