However the homeoffice site states:

This page explains the circumstances in which you can apply for
permission to stay here as the dependant of someone who is already
here in the highly skilled worker category (Tier 1 General) without
having to leave the United Kingdom and apply for entry clearance
(permission to come to the United Kingdom).
How you can switch in to the dependant route
You can apply for permission to stay here as the dependant of a highly
skilled worker without having to leave the United Kingdom and apply
for entry clearance if your last grant of entry clearance or
permission to stay here was as the partner or child of:
a participant in the Fresh Talent: Working in Scotland Scheme;
a participant in the International Graduates Scheme (or the previous
Science and Engineering Graduates Scheme);
a postgraduate doctor or dentist,
a student nurse;
a student re-sitting an examination;
a student writing up a thesis; or
a work permit holder.
