I have cleaned up the model using the clean up tools, but every time I try to parent - armature deform with automatic weights my model grows a thousand times its size and they aren't connected.

this is a copy of the file. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1NiiyVZrLf8ldHE7WCG9vIuKdr6NhaAf1/view?usp=sharing

Your model is parented to an empty which is scaled down:

enter image description here

In consequence, when parenting to the armature, the object looses the empty as parent and get back its original size.

Before parenting to the armature, select the model and use AltP to clear parent then choose "keep transforms".

Finally, select both armature and model, CtrlA to apply scale.

Then parent the model to the armature.

You need to apply the scale to the armature (metarig) and the mesh before you parent them. Select them, then press Ctrl+A, apply scale.
