Your pleas have fallen on deaf years, cos your note does not give specifics like what industry you work in, what your qualification & experience is like. Even the title 'General Training Manager' is vague.
As for trainers getting paid less or Manager Training getting more is wrong info. Good trainers are paid well by the hour.
As for your appraisal it depends on what you have done over the past year.

You have already feel strongly that you are being under
No one works for underpay. That is reality.If you strongly feel you deserve more, then you must be prepared to quit and get the job which gives you the remuneration you deserve. If you can not gedt, then you deserve what was paid to you.
This is reality. We all talk about being underpaid without realising at that moment that if we could get a job with that much salary, we wont be working there
This is not to hurt you. or hurt the feelings of anyone.
Just introspect before you take up this issue with your management
One more aspect: Dont ever say underpaid. If you want more, you ask for youself. It is always appreciated by the Mangement (Not necessarily HR) when you ask your requirements rather than comparing. It yeields better results
