Does anyone know if type ratings will be paid by BA? I presume so...

You can see why they do it. BA get access to a known standard of cadet pilots as and when they feel like it without having to decide on and run a recruitment campaign 2+ years in advance. If you're being cynical then the L3 VP being the ex BA head of short haul probably didn't harm either....

The biggest shame is that once again this restricts access to a very select group of people who have all paid 100,000+ upfront. Most companies are willing to invest to ensure equal access, in aviation management are seemingly happy to turn a blind eye. Maybe decency and equality will be given another chance in the future if FPP returns but that seems unlikely atm.
