Golden Arrow training is only the first step in the development and the training of a Patrol Leader. Remember this when reviewing the training you provide and assessing the response it produces in a Patrol Leader or Second. When using the guide below you should ask yourself:

a) In view of the experience of the Scout and the Troop, have I given him the necessary training within the intent of the Golden Arrow requirements to help him become a worthy Patrol Leader? If not, to what aspects must I give more attention?

b) Is the Patrol Leader or Second making a worthy effort to put his training across to his Patrol?

c) Taking into consideration the opportunities and limitations in our Troop, am I justified in asking the Court of Honour to approve the Golden Arrow?
