Preparation for Practical ICT Technician Interview
I have an interview coming up on Wednesday the 5th for this IT Technician job at a local secondary school.
I am required to undertake a practical task as part of the selection process at 2:30pm followed by an interview at 2:50pm. It says that the practical task may require a working knowledge of school-based multimedia and web design software.
Based on the job description in the link above, can anyone think of what this practical task might be or can anyone give me some tips or advice as to how I should prepare?

Well that's kind of broad, but from "2.10 Maintain the schools website" it could be as simple as editting a HTML line in notepad, to dreamweaver (or similar web editor).
If it says specifically about the multimedia/webdesign, that may be edit a video/music put it into a website blahblah or anything.
I guess I'd say start with the basics, get to know some "standardish" programs like Dreamweaver etc, just so at least if you need to use it you don't spend the entire interview looking for "insert button" rather than doing the task Maybe photoshop/movie maker etc too, but depends how much you want to rely on it being multimedia/web based, and not just a diversion etc.

Branching on from dreamweaver...find free to use programs as the school may use those so familiarise yourself woth those too.
Kompozer is the standard free one used by many...but there are others available also.

This is the school website:
Welcome To Limavady Grammar School Website
I have used Dreamweaver in the past to maintain the webpages of a department within a university but other than that I have very little experience.

If you can't succeed at the task, at least explain (to the person observing/marking your efforts) how you'd go about researching and achieving the desired result if you had more time available.
Practical tests are at least 50% about seeing how you perform under load.
